Private Pesticide Recertification Programs

BURLINGTON, CO – December 15, 2016 – Colorado State University Extension is hosting Private Pesticide Recertification sessions at various locations in Northeast Colorado.  Anyone who purchases restricted-use pesticides must have a Private Pesticide Applicator license which is issued by the Colorado Department of Agriculture.  Private Applicator license study guides and exams can be obtained either from the Colorado Department of Agriculture or some Extension offices.  Once a license is received, it is active for 3 years before renewal is needed.  Renewal can be achieved by either retaking the exam or attending a recertification meeting.  These recertification meetings offer credits which can be substituted for retaking the exam.

Locations are as follows:

  • February 21 – Burlington Community Center
  • February 22 – Sedgwick County Fairgrounds, Julesburg
  • February 23 – Irrigation Research Farm, Yuma
  • February 28 – Washington County Extension Office, Akron

All programs begin at 1:30 p.m. and will conclude at 5:00 p.m.  Cost is $45 per person and includes all 7 core credits.  Pre-registration can be accomplished on-line at http://goldenplains.colostate.edu/ or by contacting the Colorado State University Extension office in Burlington at 719-346-5571.  To ensure adequate space for everyone, pre-registration at these locations is required.
