Pesticide Applicator Training

2014 Training & Testing Sessions

The 2014 Private Pesticide Applicator Certification & Safety Training Classes have been completed.

Applicators who missed the training class and still need a license for 2014 can do the self-study option by purchasing a manual from a UW-Extension office and scheduling a test with that office. The fee for the book and license is $30. We recommend a week between buying the book and taking the test. You must have a score of 70% or better to pass. Applicators may also visit other counties in Wisconsin for their trainings. Visit http://ipcm.wisc.edu/pat/ for dates and locations.

For more information, contact Peg Reedy at 262-741-4961 or Kristine Ely at 262-741-4968.
