Recertification Training Course Database
Continuing recertification credits must be obtained in more than one calendar year and consist of at least 25 percent category-specific training for each category of certification.
It is the responsibility of each certified pesticide applicator to find and attend recertification courses to obtain recertification credits. Knowing when and where courses are offered is very important to the certified applicator. Because of the diversity of course sponsors, locations, content and other factors, it is difficult for applicators to be in the "know".
