The Genesee County 4-H office will be offering the National Safe Tractor and Machinery Operation Program to youth 14 to 15 years of age. The training program encompasses 32 hours of intensive instruction. Upon the completion of the training, each student will be required to take a 50 question knowledge test with a minimum passing score of 70%.
Students who successfully pass the knowledge test will be permitted to take the Skills and Driving tests. If these are successfully completed, the students will receive their formal certification from U.S. Department of Labor and will qualify youth ages 14 and 15 years of age to operate farm equipment for hire.
