Pesticide Applicator Training

If you or your employees purchase, mix, or apply “Restricted Use” pesticides on a property you own or operate in Wisconsin, you MUST be certified to do so. Certification is valid for 5 years.

The 2021 Pesticide Applicator Training will most likely be online! Testing will be in person with social distancing! Please take notice! We will continue to post updates, stay tuned!  

Applicators can also do the self-study option by purchasing a manual from a UW-Extension office and scheduling a test with that office. The fee for the training and license is $30 and includes the book. We recommend a week between paying the fee and taking the test. You must have a score of 70% or better to pass. Applicators may also visit other counties in Wisconsin for their training. Visit Private Applicator Training Sessions for dates and locations.
