Continuing Education Requirements

Who needs to get continuing education credits?
All Commercial Pesticide Supervisors (any category), and all Private Applicators are required to get 12 credits of continuing education per category per renewal cycle (5 years) as part of their renewal.

If a person holds multiple categories, they need at least 12 separate credits per category. Core credits cannot count towards multiple categories (eg. If you have 3 core credits they count for 3 total credits, NOT 3 per category). A certification will not be renewed unless an individual has all of the credit requirements.
