This training was prepared by the Transportation Curriculum Coordination Council (TCCC) in partnership with NHI and has been designed for someone learning the first steps in the vegetation management. However, it does not go into the education of weed prevention. This training is recommended for the Transportation Curriculum Coordination Council levels I, and II. This course is primarily intended for inspectors and technicians.
The first step in determining an appropriate weed control strategy is to identify the weed plant. There are numerous different plants growing along many roadsides that can be considered weeds. This is a basic course in the area of weed identification. Most weeds are territorial to different climates and regions, therefore, making it difficult to identify nationally weeds that are dealt with by different State DOT's. This training does focus on southeastern states and is organized in alphabetical order of the weeds that will be covered.
For more information on how stop the migration of weeds contact your State Vegetation Management Program.
This course is designed for entry level individuals working in vegetation management.
