Pesticide recertification
Requirements
Recertification is the process of getting your pesticide certification again after it expires. This can be done by either of two ways:

1. Going to training classes.

OR

2. Taking and passing all tests again.

If you choose the first option, the number of classes needed depends on the type of license. 

Duplicate credits will not be given for repeating a course in the same calendar year, regardless of location or sponsor.

Private pesticide applicators
  • 16 total credit hours are needed during the five-year certification period.
  • 4 hours must be core classes.  Core classes cover pesticide safety, laws, and other basic topics.
  • 12 hours can be non-core classes.
  • No more than 8 hours (including core) in each calendar year (January 1 - December 31) can count for your credits.
  • You may start getting credits the day after you pass your test.

Consultants, public and commercial applicators
  • 40 credit hours are needed during the five-year certification period.
  • No more than 15 hours in each calendar year (January 1 - December 31) can count for your credits.
  • Classes can be either core or non-core.
  • You may start getting credits the day after you pass all necessary tests.
