Pesticide Applicator LicenseTraining

Santa Rosa County Extension invites anyone interested in obtaining a Private Applicator or Ag Row Crop Restricted Use Pesticide License to attend the upcoming pesticide safety training.  The training will be held Wednesday, February 22, at 9:00 AM., at the Linda Carden (Jay) Community Center at 5259 Booker Lane in Jay.  Attendees will learn the basics of applying pesticides correctly as test preparation for the exams (private applicator and core) necessary to attain a Florida Restricted Use Pesticide Applicators License.

Anyone applying or supervising the application of restricted use pesticides on agricultural or related sites in Florida needs a restricted use pesticide license. Agricultural and related sites include, but are not limited to the following areas: farms, plant nurseries, livestock operations, forests, or ornamental and turf not associated with structures.  A “private applicator” is an individual who has reached the age of maturity (generally 18 years old) and is licensed by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) to use or supervise the use of any restricted use pesticide for purposes of producing any agricultural commodity on property owned or rented by the licensed person or that person’s employer. This license is for farm, ranch, grove, nursery, sod farm applications, etc.

CEUs offered at this training include 2 Core, 2 Aerial, 2 Ag Row Crop, and 2 Private Applicator. The category points will be available in the morning part of the class while the core training will take place after lunch. The cost per person is $15, which includes lunch. Advanced registration is required to ensure adequate preparations are made for lunch, materials and exams.
