Tractor Safety Course

  • Wednesday, February 6, 2019, 7:00 PM - Tuesday, April 2@ 9:00 PM

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.

Dates will be Tuesdays in April, with the first meeting held in the CCE Conference Room at 7PM on April 2nd. Location and times of other dates TBA. A final test will be on Saturday, May 6, 2019.  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.
