Pesticide applicators take training classes for recertification credits.
Pesticide applicators attend training to receive recertification credits for license renewal. 

WICHITA — The 2022 Commercial Pesticide Applicator Training Workshop is being offered for those that work as applicators of turf and ornamental pest management products. The workshop will be held as a hybrid event – participants can attend either in person or online via Zoom, on Wednesday, November 16, 2022 from 8:00am – 5:00pm.  

All lawn, landscape, and pest control companies who commercially apply pesticides for control of insects, diseases, weeds, or other pests are required by the Kansas Department of Agriculture to be certified in order to safely use pesticides. 

Once certified, commercial applicators must renew their license every 3 years by either receiving continuing education credits (such as provided by this workshop) or by examination.  By educating, training, and testing people who apply pesticides, consumers can be assured that the person applying pesticides to their lawn, home, or workplace is knowledgeable and qualified to safely do so.

The 2022 Commercial Pesticide Applicator Training Workshop hosted by K-State Research & Extension Sedgwick County is the largest training workshop in South Central Kansas for commercial pesticide applicators in the lawn & landscape industry.  Training topics will include weed, insect and disease identification and management on turfgrass and ornamental plants, as well as an update on Kansas laws for pesticide applicators.  A brochure with complete schedule details and event information is attached here

The registration fee is $60 through November 4th, 2022.  After November 4th, the registration fee will be $75.00 per person. Registration closes on November 11th.  Register online at: www.tinyurl.com/2022recertification
