2017 Re certification Workshops

Commercial, Noncommercial & Structural

To recertify, for each category, you must either attend a re certification workshop or retake the 'new applicator' closed-book monitored exam.

Information about workshops will be posted as details are finalized.

Retesting for recertification is an alternative to attending an approved recertification workshop.
You must retest or attend a recertification workshop in each license category for which you need to recertify.
The MN Dept. of Ag charges a per category fee when retesting is used for re certification.
For more information from the MN Dept. of Ag. click here. To schedule a retest for re certification click here.
