Rice and Goodhue Counties are holding Safety Certification courses. The certification includes an online course that must be completed before the in-person dates, and a two day hands on certification course. In order to work for someone other than a family member and operate machinery between the ages of 14 and 16 youth must have completed a safety certification course. This course counts towards that requirement! Certification is for ages 14+ and registration will open in Mid April.
Rice County Tractor Safety Certification in-person course is July 12-13 at Quality Equipment Sales and Service in Faribault. For more information, contact Claire LaCanne.
