Importance of pesticide applicator training

A private pesticide applicator is someone who uses or supervises the use of restricted-use or state-limited-use pesticides or regulated herbicides in order to control pests in an agricultural setting.

During the course, participants will learn how to apply pesticides safely and correctly. The information in the course also helps prepare participants to take the TDA’s required licensing exam.
