For All Consulting Rosarians & Nominees:
The 4-hour school commences with a brief summary of the CR program and responsibilities, then provides instruction on four core topics:
• Soil & Water
• Insects & Disease
• Chemical Safety/Pesticides
Continuing Education Credits:
Current CRs can extend their “currency” through the end of 2021 by auditing this school.
OR, they can accrue the required four, one-hour-seminar credits by attending the Saturday lectures and other ARS-approved seminars. However, to fulfill the once-every-four-years audit requirement, the credits must include an approved Chemical Safety/Pesticides presentation. (Two DSD local societies in 2016 conducted ARS-approved Chemical Safety/Pesticides seminars at local meetings).
Qualifications & Forms
Any member of the American Rose Society who also is an active member of an ARS Charter or affiliate local society may qualify as a Consulting Rosarian by the following:
After passing the open book written exam, the new CR then receives a date for the completion of their next 4-point audit. CRs are required to accrue 4 credits (including Chemical Safety/Pesticides) in 4 years by either attending approved seminars for CR credits or by auditing an approved CR school before the end of December of their audit year. A Consulting Rosarian ribbon badge is available from ARS Headquarters for those who have met the school and test requirements. School receipt certificates are required to obtain the badge.
