Pesticide Applicator Training (PAT)

Private Applicators can get certified in three categories: General Farming, Fruits Crops or Greenhouse & Nursery.

As a Private Applicator, you have to study the training materials and get certified by passing the private applicator test if you use Restricted-Use Pesticides (RUPs). If you are not going to use RUPs then you do not need to be certified. To receive training and certification, purchase the appropriate manual from the PAT Store and do one of the options below:

1) Study on your own and take the certification exam at a participating County Extension office or take it online through Pearson Vue (fee required).

2) Go to a training session offered through the PAT Program (typically only available Jan- April). The exam will be given at the end of the training session.

3) Sign up for and watch the online training video, (Register Here) and schedule an exam time at a participating County Extension office or take it online through Pearson Vue (fee required).

To register for the General Farming online training or a Zoom training select the option you want.
