2019 Programs

Wisconsin Safe Operation of Tractor and Machinery Programs are arranged locally. It is best to check with your county Division of Extension office or a local high school agricultural education instructor for when a program will be offered in your area. Programs are usually offered once per year. At this time Wisconsin does not offer an on-line certification program. Program information will be updated as received.

Program registration costs vary based on local resources and community support. Programs in grey have already occurred.
