BOZEMAN -- The Montana Noxious Weed Education Campaign’s online noxious weed training course for realtors opens April 17.

The course is intended to provide realtors with a broad understanding of noxious weeds so that they can recognize noxious weeds and subsequently direct both buyers and sellers to resources for noxious weed identification and management.

The training consists of five modules: noxious weeds 101, plant anatomy and weed identification, weed identification, understanding Montana’s County Weed Control Act and integrated weed management. The course is certified through the Association for Real Estate License Law Officials and the Montana Board of Realty Regulation and has been approved for four continuing education credits in the environmental issues category.

“This course is well thought out, easy to follow, very informative and will be a great resource for all agents,” said one realtor from Helena who completed the course during an earlier offering. “As compared with other online courses I have taken, this was more hands on. I like the opportunity for interaction.”

To promote the training and noxious weed education within the realtor community, a limited number of registration fee waivers are available for realtors.

Once registered, participants will have six months (Oct. 17), to complete the course and obtain four continuing education credits.

The Montana Noxious Weed Education Campaign is a cooperative effort among state and federal entities, including Montana State University and non-governmental organizations that educate the people of Montana about noxious weeds and encourage them to participate in integrated weed management.
