2016 Recertification Workshops

Commercial, Noncommercial & Structural

To recertify, for each category, you must either attend an approved recertification workshop (listed below) or retake the category certification closed-book monitored exam.

Check your 2016 Minnesota pesticide applicator license card or look yourself up on the MN Dept. of Ag license database (click here).

All workshops for 2016 have now been held.

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.
