Private pesticide applicators

Find exam information, workshops and courses for those who apply pesticides to their own land or to sites for the production of agricultural commodities.

All 2022 recertification workshops are closed

Choose one of the exam options to certify in 2022.

You must take the online or mail-in exam if:

  • You missed the workshops and self-paced course in January and February of this year and you wish to recertify.
  • You are a new applicator and you want to become certified.
  • Your license has lapsed and you are not currently certified through March 1, 2022.

Check back in mid-December for 2023 recertification information.


Find study manuals and exam information below. In-person and online workshop information and registration will be added to this page when it is available. Please check back in December for training options.
