UW-Extension Dodge County will offer the Youth Farm Tractor and Equipment Operations Safety Training program in January 2018. This program includes the classroom instruction in January and a practical test in April or May. The training is held only once a year. Fond du Lac County will not have training in 2018.

Class participants younger than 14 will receive their federal certificate after they turn 14.
