2014 Private Pesticide Applicator Recertification Workshops

Workshop information

Listing of all workshops

  1. Workshops will last about 3 ½ hours. Arrive before the listed workshop start time. No pre-registration necessary - allow time to register on-site before the workshop begins.
  2. You must attend the entire workshop. Anyone who arrives more than 15 minutes late to a workshop will not be allowed to receive recertification credit. The MN Dept. of Ag requires workshop participants to attend the entire workshop to receive credit for recertification. No exceptions to this requirement. If can not attend the entire workshop, you may attended another workshop (must attend entire workshop – not just parts missed) or take the on-line or mail-in test.
  3. The MN Dept. of Ag. requires all workshop participants to present a government issued photo ID such as your drivers license, passport, etc.
  4. Bring your Private Pesticide Applicator Certification card or number. This will assist in the on-site registration process. If you have misplaced your certification card you may obtain your certification number from the MN. Dept. of Ag. web site or by contacting MDA via phone at tel: 651-201-6615.
  5. If you are not currently certified (i.e. certified through March 1, 2014) you can not become certified by attending a Recertification Workshop. In that case, to become certified, take the 2014 test on-line or take the 2014 mail-in test. 2014 mail-in test packets are available from local county extension offices. You might call ahead to check. On-line tests (and retakes) must be completed before October 31, 2014. Mail-in tests must be received before October 31, 2014.
  6. The on-line test, mail-in test and recertification workshops have the same fee of $50.00. Checks should be made out to the University of Minnesota. Sorry, no credit cards or cash can be accepted for the workshop or mail-in test fee.
