Anyone who intends to purchase, mix, load, apply, or direct the use of restricted use pesticides as a private applicator must be certified. Certification is good for five years.
You must re-certify before your expiration date if you want to continue to use restricted-use pesticides. (Check your certification card for the exact date.)
How do I re-certify?
