2022 WOW Report

Series 3.0 of our WCTA online webinars or ‘WOW’, wrapped up on November 17 with over 60 in attendance.  These virtual educational offerings using the Zoom platform, often focus on obtaining CEC/CEU points for pesticide certificate renewal in BC and Alberta and have proved to be a very popular and valuable service for WCTA members.

We’d like to take this opportunity to recognize and thank our speakers over the past season, who don’t charge fees and without whom, we would not be able to offer this free service.
