Private pesticide applicators with a license to purchase and apply restricted use pesticides are required to attend 3 hours of recertification training every 3 years to maintain their license. Private applicator license categories are Core (basic pesticide handling, application, safety, rules and regulations), 1: Grain and Cereal Field Crops, 2: Forage Crops and Livestock, 3: Fruit and Vegetable Crops, 4: Nursery and Forest Crops, 5: Greenhouse Crops, 6: Fumigation.
Fertilizer applicator recertification is a one-hour program. For those who also have a pesticide license, your fertilizer certificate and recertification date/year should be synched to your pesticide license and is listed as category 15.
Applicators are encouraged to arrive 15 to 20 minutes before the advertised program starting time, to allow for sign-in and picking up handout materials. Please remember to bring your pesticide license or fertilizer card with you to the training session.
