First Detector Training Opportunities

The GPDN offers First Detector training to those individuals who in the course of their duties are in a position to notice an unusual outbreak, a pest of concern, or symptoms of a pest of concern. This includes a wide variety of private, commercial, university and government personnel involved in plant growth or management.
