Pesticide Safety Education Program

Program Goal: The State of Connecticut requires that individuals using restricted-use pesticides on their own property or property which they rent for agricultural purposes become certified as private pesticide applicators. Individuals who hold themselves out for hire to apply any type of pesticides are required to be certified as commercial applicators. All applicators must maintain their certification by earning re-certification credit at educational programs.

Learning Objective: Train and certify commercial pesticide applicators in use, handling, storage, and application process.
