The Colorado Environmental Pesticide Education Program (CEPEP) is committed to providing accurate, up-to-date information on pesticide laws and regulations, environmental protection, worker protection, and pesticide safety for applicators, trainers, agricultural workers and supervisors, and the general public.
What we do
- CEPEP coordinates and implements the CSU Pesticide Safety Education Program (PSEP) and is involved in creating a School Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program in area schools.
- CEPEP trains pesticide applicators and employers throughout Colorado in both private and commercial categories. We also train workers/handlers and agricultural employers on EPA’s Worker Protection Standard.
- We maintain and revise pesticide applicator study guides for those preparing to take their certification exams. Order Colorado Pesticide Applicator Study Guides
- We maintain a media library with pesticide training videos and DVDs, as well as CD-ROM information tools and other multimedia resources.
- We provide an up-to-date index of upcoming continuing education credits for pesticide applicator recertification.
CEPEP is part of the Department of Bioagricultural Sciences and Pest Management in the College of Agricultural Sciences at Colorado State University (CSU).
