Category P: Vertebrate Pests

Mouse on white background.

Learn about applying pesticides for vertebrate pest control, including repellents. The audience is commercial and noncommercial pesticide applicators.

*Most Category P workshops are held in conjunction with A and E (Turf & Ornamentals) workshops. If you attend an A, E, P workshop, you will be required to attend the entire workshop including E presentations.

Category P recertification workshops also include recertification credit for Category A (core).

Who must attend a Category P recertification workshop in 2020?

Minnesota pesticide applicators licensed in Categories A and P who last attended a workshop in 2018 need to attend an MDA approved recertification workshop. New pesticide applicators (licensed for the first time in 2019) need to attend a workshop, too. Attendance at an approved recertification workshop once every two years fulfills the recertification requirement in Categories A and P by licensed commercial and noncommercial pesticide applicators.

When do I renew my license, attend a recertification workshop or retest?

Renewal

License renewal is required every year and follows recertification. Attending a 2020 recertification workshop for Category P enables pesticide applicators to renew their license in 2020 and 2021. If an applicator does not attend a 2020 workshop in their categories as required, retesting must be completed before a license can be renewed. Then, in addition to the license application fee, retest fees are charged for each category.

Recertification

If you attend a recertification workshop in 2020 for Category P, you'll be required to attend a recertification workshop or take the exam again in 2022.
