The short course is generally divided into two concurrent oral programs:
1) Applicator Training for those who need to take the CORE and Category Exams
2) Continuing Education for License Renewal.
Since you will only receive CEU credits for the sessions you attend, it is imperative that you review the program agenda and attend the sessions that a) provide the CEU credits you require and b) are most suited to your educational needs.
Keep in mind that special sessions, such as the Plant ID and Equipment Calibration, will also run concurrent to oral sessions. For instance, if you attend one of the special sessions you cannot earn the credits from the oral session going on at the same time. You would only earn credit for the special session.
