All youth aged 14 and 15 and working on a farm or ranch other than their own MUST be certified through a Hazardous Occupations Course. Successful completion of the course will allow trained youth to operate a tractor over 20 horsepower, or to connect or disconnect an implement or any of its parts to or from a tractor. Several locations offered and Advanced Registration is required. Learn more at https://4h.unl.edu/tractor-safety-training.
The Tractor Safety Training team has decided that if a family is having difficulty with the $40 registration fee for our course, we will provide waivers to cover the fee. We do not want anyone missing out because of monetary difficulties. Safety is first priority.
Coordinators on the attached updated flier should be contacted regarding the waiver. Participants should call or email the location contact person regarding where to send a completed form and learn about next steps.
