Courses for NEW Pesticide Applicator Licensing
In order to take the certification exams to become licensed to use pesticides in NJ, an applicator applicant must satisfy PCP-approved training requirements for basic pesticide safety and on-the-job training for any categories that they wish to be licensed. Pesticide training specifically must provide an understanding of the principles of Integrated Pest Management. For more details, go to the Pesticide Applicator Training section of this website.
New Jersey licensed commercial pesticide applicators are required to maintain their certification by attending courses awarding recertification credits in CORE and the categories in which they wish to maintain certification and licensing. Specifically, commercial applicators must complete a total of 8 CORE and 16 ‘category’ credits within five years beginning the first November following applicator certification. IPM concepts are covered with the category training; call the listed course moderator for details.
Recertification Course Schedules
The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) evaluates all recertification courses. Course topics offered for recertification credit include: Core (private or commercial certifications), PP2 for private certification, as well as each of the 13 commercial pest control categories. Recertification credits can be earned by either attending NJDEP-approved recertification courses, or by completing an NJDEP-approved online training module.
Numerous online CEU courses are available and the NJDEP reports that they continue to work directly with course providers to maintain an adequate number of online courses and CEUs while ensuring providers adhere to minimal online modality standards including student ID verification and class monitoring.
