Initial Training for New Pesticide Applicators

In NH, if you apply pesticides on crops for sale and you employ workers, you need a private pesticide applicator’s license. This is true whether you apply general use OR restricted use materials. Those who apply pesticides to properties owned by others, whether or not payment is exchanged, need a commercial applicators’ license.

This spring, UNH Extension will offer trainings to help those who want to get their private (or commercial) pesticide applicator’s license.  Attendance at one of these trainings is not required, but will help attendees focus their studying and be ready to pass the exam.

Instructors will provide a review of the information found in the national pesticide applicator certification core manual, the NH code of administrative rules, and the worker protection standard for agricultural pesticides. The actual test will be held the last day of training in each location.

The dates and locations of the trainings are:

  • Cheshire County: Mondays, 1-4pm. Mar 5, 12 and 19.
  • Merrimack County: Wednesdays, 1-4pm. Mar 14, 21, and 28.
  • Coos County: Mondays, 1-4pm. Apr 16, 23, and 30.
