Commercial/Non-Commercial Pesticide Application Recertification Training (includes Commercial Applicator Technicians)
Recertification Training for Commercial/Non-Commercial Applicators:
Commercial and Non-Commercial applicators that have and want to maintain a license must be retrained (recertified) every 3 years in most cases.
Two options for commercial/non-commercial applicator recertification:
Option 1: We now have online recertification available at the link below. Follow the directions carefully. The online training will give you a full 3-year certification, but remember that you can only get a 1-year license. Therefore, each year you will have to renew your license via the Arkansas Department of Agriculture’s online license renewal form.
Option 2: Attend an in-person recertification training at one of the following locations. All meetings start at 10:00 a.m. sharp and will end by 3:00 p.m.
