2018 Private Pesticide Applicator Workshops

— Written By

Persons who purchase or apply restricted-use-pesticides on their own farm are required by state law to have a private applicator certification. Persons who do not get recertified by the recertification deadline (September 30, 2018) must pass a written exam to obtain a new license. Although the card shows an expiration date of December 2018, you must have 2 hours credit in the V subclass and 2 hours credit in the X subclass (total of 4 hours credit) by September 30, 2018.
