See this page in: English
Learn about applying insecticides and fungicides to seeds. The audience is commercial and noncommercial pesticide applicators. Category H recertification workshops also include recertification credit for Category A (core), and some also include Category C.
Who must attend a Category H Recertification Workshop in 2019?
Minnesota pesticide applicators licensed in Categories A and H who last attended a workshop in 2016 need to attend an MDA approved recertification workshop. New pesticide applicators (licensed for the first time in 2018) need to attend a workshop, too. Attendance at an approved recertification workshop once every two years fulfills the recertification requirement in Categories A and H by licensed commercial and noncommercial pesticide applicators. Some license categories require recertification more often.
When do I renew my license, attend a recertification workshop or retest?
Renewal: License renewal is required every year and follows recertification. Attending a 2019 recertification workshop for Category H enables pesticide applicators to renew their license in 2019, 2020 and 2021. If an applicator does not attend a 2019 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 2019 for Category H, you'll be required to attend a recertification workshop or take the exam again in 2022.
