Private Pesticide Certification Trainings

            Pesticide certification is required for anyone who uses any restricted pesticide for purposes of producing an agricultural commodity on property owned or rented by the person. Applicators need to attend an initial certification and pass an exam to become certified. Once certified, they need to attend a training every 3 years to renew their certificate. Typically, these trainings are held after the new year but due to the pandemic, I have decided to host four general certification trainings and one fumigation certification training this fall.

Due to the pandemic, the following changes will be implemented:

  • Pre-registration is required
  • Face masks will be required
  • If producers are a part of the COVID-19 risk population, we ask they do not participate in these trainings
  • Testing will not occur at the trainings
  • Telephone registrations will not be accepted

The dates and times of the trainings are listed below:

Private General Trainings

  • November 4th: Location TDA, 6:30-9:30pm
  • November 10th: Morton County Fairgrounds, New Salem. 12:30-3:30pm
  • November 17th: 1 More Bar & Grill, Flasher, 12:30-3:30pm
  • December 2nd: First Lutheran Church, Mandan, 12:30-3:30pm
