CSU SEA Extension: Private Pesticide Re-Certification Meetings

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. Licenses that expire prior to obtaining recertification credits will require re-taking the private pesticide exam.

Locations and times are as follows:

  • Tuesday, January 22, 2019; Sedgwick County Fairgrounds, 1 pm to 4:30
  • Wednesday, January 23; Kit Carson County Extension office, 8:30 am to noon
  • Thursday, January 24, Washington County Extension office, 1 to 4:30 pm

Registration is required and the cost is $50/person. Registration on-line can be accomplished at http://goldenplains.extension.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.
