Category B: Aerial
Learn about pesticide application with an aircraft. The audience is commercial and noncommercial pesticide applicators. Category B recertification workshops also include recertification credit for Category A (core).
Who must attend a Category B Recertification Workshop in 2019?
Minnesota pesticide applicators licensed in Category B who last attended a workshop in 2018. Applicators in Category B must recertify every year. This workshop is held annually, and rotates between Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota. The 2019 workshop will be held in South Dakota. The 2020 workshop will be in Minnesota, and the 2021 workshop will be in North Dakota. Attendance at an approved recertification workshop every year fulfills the recertification requirement in Categories A and B by licensed commercial and noncommercial pesticide applicators.
When do I renew my license, attend a recertification workshop or retest?
License renewal is required every year and follows recertification. Attending a 2019 recertification workshop enables pesticide applicators to renew their license in 2020. 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.
