Registration Required by February 13,
Any youth, ages 14 to 15 years old, planning on working on any farm other than their home farm must have this certification to be in compliance with the United States Department of Labor Fair Labor Standards Act. Registration is limited to Ontario County youths on a first come, first served basis; although, youth from surrounding counties may register and participate if space allows. Youth must be age 14 before April 1, 2024 to register.

All participants must attend every session and pass the course to earn certification.

The course fee is $40.00 for Ontario County residents and $50.00 for out of county residents. This covers the workbook, videos, demonstrations, and pizza for the two daytime programs. There are several instructors, who have many years of experience that have volunteered their time to teach these youths.
