Businesses that work in, around lakes need class
Mar 04, 2013 (Duluth News Tribune - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) --
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will offer lake service provider training in Duluth on from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. March 12 at First United Methodist Church, 230 E. Skyline Parkway.
The classes are required for businesses and people who work in and around waterways to help stop the spread of aquatic invasive species.
Businesses that work in Minnesota waters, such as installing docks or moving boats, must obtain a permit to conduct their work. Registration for the courses and permit applications is available. The cost for the course is $50.
Before a permit is issued, a lake service provider must apply for a permit, pay the application fee, attend a training session and pass a written exam. The permit is valid for three years and service providers must be in possession of the permit while providing services. Employees working under the supervision of a permitted lake service provider only need to complete the free, online training course.
For more information on lake service provider training, permits and scheduled training sessions throughout the state, visit the DNR lake service provider website. Additional courses will be offered March 15 in International Falls, March 20 in Grand Rapids, March 26 in Bena and June 19 in Brainerd.
