Description:

If you possess a private pesticide applicators license, this means that you use or supervise the use of restricted use pesticides (RUP) for the purpose of producing an agricultural commodity on property owned or rented by the applicator or their employer. A private applicator can apply RUP’s for a neighbor only if it is considered trading of services between two producers of agricultural commodities. A homeowner who desires to use a restricted use pesticide on his/her garden is not eligible to be certified as a private applicator.

Agricultural commodity producers wishing to be certified can do so by successfully passing a 50 question multiple-choice test (closed book). The test questions are based upon information in the EPA approved core manual “Applying Pesticides Correctly” manual. The study material can be obtained through the Avery County Cooperative Extension Center.

Your current private applicators license will expire in the third year of your specific certification cycle on the 31st day of December. However, if your license expires in 2019, then you must earn 2.0 credit hours of sub-class V credit and 2.0 credit hours of sub-class X before September 30, 2019. This recertification class is NCDA approved.

The V class is the Core Pesticide Safety Training. This training will update private applicators regarding any changes in the pesticide laws and labels. Also, a section on calibration and using pesticides safely will be conducted.

The applicator must also obtain 2.0 credit hours of approved continuing certification credits, in sub-class X, which include the categories; Ag Pest-Plant, Pest-Animal, Forestry, Ornamental and Turf, Aquatic and Seed Treatment.

If you possess a private applicator license and do not attend these recertification opportunities, you must again pass the Private Pesticide Applicator exam to be recertified.

You are required to attend only ONE Safety Class to earn your sub-class V credit, within the three-year rotation.
