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.

Due to COVID-19, the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) is suspending pesticide applicator in-person certification testing until further notice. As a result, DATCP is extending current pesticide applicator certifications until December 31, 2021. Private and commercial pesticide applicators with certifications that expire January 31, 2020-November 30, 2021, can continue to operate as a certified pesticide applicator until December 31, 2021.
