Due to COVID-19, the deadline for pesticide applicator recertification has been extended for 2021. Private applicators whose certification was set to expire on 3/31/21 now have until 7/1/21 to recertify. We have a few options for applicators who want to certify this winter:
1. In-person traditional recertification: This in person recertification is $35 for pesticide recertification and $10 for fertilizer recertification. Pre-Registration is required. In the event that this program cannot be held in person, it will be transitioned into a virtual format, so it is important that we have current contact information to keep you up-to-date.
