The Oklahoma Vegetation Management Association host 2 conferences every year to provide training and an opportunity for continued education for both herbicide applicators and arborist. Agendas are submitted to both the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food & Forestry and ISA for approval. The spring conference is scheduled in March of each year whereas the Fall Conference, Trade Show and Training is scheduled in October.

In addition to providing continued education opportunities, OKVMA sponsors a review session with OSU Extension Service providing the training the day before the general session meeting for those wanting assistance with obtaining their Oklahoma Commercial Applicator Certification. The review session will cost $15 to cover the Core Manual. See the Registration Form to secure your spot. Please note that OKVMA will no longer host a exam session as ODAFF are in the process of implementing an on-line test program.  Details will be available at the conference. OKVMA hosts a test site for ISA certification as well.
