Request for help from PCAs regarding class review
May 27, 2020
I’m looking for a few experienced PCAs or growers/managers to watch an on-line class for airblast sprayer calibration training and give it a quick review. The class has to be up and running smoothly by Sept. 1 and to do so we need to get reviews by people who are potential users (PCA’s, growers, etc) by June 1 .
- Take a short pre-test (10 questions, T/F and multiple choice)
- Watch the class. There are some quick calibration calculations involved, but this shouldn’t be difficult (go quickly). This should take about 2-2.5 hours. [There is good educational content in this class so while it takes valuable time, it’s not wasted time.]
- Taking a quick post-test
- Giving some feedback on the experience of taking the class.
- Total time, about 3 hours.
I know there isn’t much (any?) extra time now and I wish I could be making this request in the fall or early winter, but to get the final posted by Sept 1, the reviews are needed now.
For taking the time to do this review, we are offering free access several to a UC IPM on-line class with 1-2 CE units. These classes usually cost around $50. If you are interested/willing, please send me an e-mail (or call my cell) and I’ll get you the link to the class, the review report form, and info for the free (to you) on-line class from IPM.
Thanks for considering this request, especially at this time of year.
