Farm machinery safety course set

Apr 3rd, 2013 | Category: News

SKAGIT – The WSU Skagit County Extension offers its annual Farm Machine Safety Course starting April 16. The course, instructed by Extension Director Don McMoran, is available to those 12 years and older and costs $50 per person. Classes are held Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6 to 8 p.m. through May 16 at WSU Skagit County Extension, located at 11768 Westar Lane, Suite A in Burlington (near the airport). Last year’s class contained a mix of middle school, high school and adults. Federal law requires those driving tractors for hire to be at least 16 years old. An exception is if they are 14 or 15 years old and have completed a safety course like this one, or if a student is enrolled as a vocational agriculture student. Space is limited. For more information, or to register, contact WSU Skagit County Extension at (360) 428-4270 ext. 225 or e-mail donaldm@co.skagit.wa.us.
