Stop and read carefullyApplying pesticides requires appropriate education and training – known as certification and/or recertification - to assure safe and effective use. Please DO NOT pay for any of the following courses until you are sure it is the correct course by reading below.

These are the basic types of pesticide applicators:

Private Applicator: applicators who use restricted-use pesticides to produce agricultural commodities on property owned or rented by them or their employer. This does not include the home gardener. Restricted use pesticides are not labeled for use in home gardens. To be eligible for a Private Applicator License one must be a producer of an agricultural commodity.

Commercial Applicator (Firm and Individual): applicators who apply pesticides for hire for any purpose or on property other than that specified for defining private applicators. This includes aerial and ground applicators.

Non-Commercial Applicator: applicators who use restricted-use pesticides for their employer and not for hire basis. They do not qualify as a Private Applicator nor require Commercial Applicators License. Examples: city employees, researchers, Extension Agents, chemical company representatives, etc.
