Cornell Cooperative Extension and Lewis County 4-H will once again sponsor a Tractor Certification Course. Federal Law requires the certification program for any youth under the age of 16 who operate a tractor off property owned or leased by their parents. New York State Law requires a tractor safety certificate for youth to drive a tractor on roadways.
This course will be offered for youth 14-15 years of
age. If a youth of this age plans to work on a farm they will need to
hold a valid certification in Tractor Operation. If you are already
certified in tractor operation you are welcome to come for a refresher
course or to get certified in farm machinery operation.
There will be a $10 charge to cover the cost of the textbook.
Sessions are approximately 2 hours and attendance is mandatory at all four meetings.
To register for this event, please call the 4-H office at 315-376-5270.
April 3, 9, 16 & 30 from 7-9pm (Locations will change each week)
May 7 - Written & Driving Test, Location and Time TBD
