New Pesticide Applicator Training Classes

(Core and Categories 5, 6c, 8)

It is not yet determined if this New Applicator training will be held online as a webinar or in person. Everyone attending the morning session will receive documentation that they have met the requirements of Trained Serviceperson training. A Trained Serviceperson can apply pesticides in Ohio as long as they are working under the supervision of a licensed commercial applicator. Unlike the in-person, online training does not qualify as trained serviceperson training. 

Live location: Ohio Department of Agriculture, Bromfield Administration Building 8995 East Main Street Reynoldsburg, Ohio 43068

This training program provides an overview of pesticide safety information. The afternoon sessions will review Ornamental Weed Control (Category 6c). Attendees will choose between Industrial Vegetation (Category 5) and Turf (Category 8).

No testing is available at the conclusion of the online course. Contact the ODA to schedule your exam.

Note: There will be no recertification credits offered at any 2021 New Applicator classes. If you need recertification credits, please attend one of our online 2021 Commercial Recertification Programs in the winter.
