2021 Tractor Safety Online Course Information

This year Tractor Safety Courses will be held online, below is the information on how to register:

According to the U.S. Department of Labor if you intend to do farm work for someone other than a parent or legal guardian, you must complete a Tractor Safety course. 

Youth must be 14 years-old or older to take a youth Tractor Safety course. 

Here is how our online course works: 

This course will be free to register for, but participants will need to purchase a digital download of the 2021 manual from Penn State for $15.00.

You will register to take the online course here: 


You will find the manual that the youth will need to study for the written exam at the following link. (Due to a late release of the 2021 Manual, only digital downloads may be purchased, there are no physical copies.) It cost $15.00 and will cover everything that the written exam will test on. 

Purchase it here: https://extension.psu.edu/national-safe-tractor-and-machinery-operation-program-manual 



You must complete and pass the written exam within 30 days of registration. Once you enter the test you MUST complete all of it entirely. Answers will not be saved, and test will have to be restarted if an exit occurs. To pass you must receive a 70% or higher. In order to move on to the driving exam of tractor's safety, you must pass the written exam.  



After passing the written exam, you will receive another email with the form needed for the driving course. You will have a producer or your employer sign-off that you have completed and successfully passed each maneuver. Once you are finished and have a signature on this portion, you will take the signed form to your local extension office. The agent will then sign-off and send off for your certificate of completion.
