Edgar's picture

Training dates are set for Nebraska’s commercial and noncommercial pesticide applicators seeking first-time certification or recertification of their license to buy or use restricted-use pesticides in 2017. The statewide training is coordinated through the Nebraska Extension Pesticide Safety Education Program (PSEP).

Again this year, the training is offered at a variety of locations from January through April. Commercial and noncommercial applicators whose certifications expire in April, are to be mailed a schedule booklet showing certification information and dates. The booklet also is available at local extension offices; by phoning PSEP at 800-627-7216 or 402-472-1632; or by visiting http://pested.unl. edu/commercialschedule.

In 2017, approximately 3,700 commercial and noncommercial applicators will need to be recertified. They include fumigators, ornamental and turf applicators, exterminators and others.

Commercial applicators are those using restricted-use pesticides, and in some cases, general-use pesticides, on a contract or for-hire basis. Noncommercial applicators are those applying these same pesticides to sites owned by an employer or for a governmental agency or political subdivision of the state.
