Any person handling, applying or supervising the use of pesticides as part of that person’s job must be certified and licensed by the Kentucky Department of Agriculture. Non-commercial pesticide applicators must complete 12 hours of training over a three-year period to remain certified. Our workshops offer four hours of continuing education training.
The Technology Transfer Program will be offering training and testing for Categories 3, 5 and 6; as well as continuing education for Categories 3, 5, 6, 8 & 18. Listed below are workshop and category descriptions.
In accordance with the Kentucky Department of Agriculture (KDA), participants may only attend and receive credit for the Pesticide Continuing Education online training course once a season. A new course is released each year around September.
