Montana noxious weed online training course now open

MONTANA LIVING — In Montana's war against weeds, the state has launched an online training program for real estate professionals.

The Montana Noxious Weed Education Campaign’s online noxious weed training course for real estate professionals is now open.

The course is intended to provide real estate professionals with a broad understanding of noxious weeds so that they can recognize noxious weeds and subsequently direct both buyers and sellers to resources for noxious weed identification and management.

The course consists of five modules: noxious weeds 101, plant anatomy and weed identification, weed identification, understanding Montana’s County Weed Control Act and integrated weed management. The course is certified through the Association for Real Estate License Law Officials and the Montana Board of Realty Regulation and has been approved for four continuing education credits in the environmental issues category.

Once registered, participants will have six months – until March 23 – to complete the course and obtain four continuing education credits.
The Montana Noxious Weed Education Campaign is a cooperative effort among state and federal entities, including Montana State University and non-governmental organizations that educate the people of Montana about noxious weeds and encourage them to participate in integrated weed management.

For more information, including details about possible registration fee waivers, or to register, contact Shantell Martin at 406-328-4785 or shantell.frame@montana.edu.
