Private Pesticide Applicator Training

Local Extension offices offer training and testing opportunities for Private Pesticide Applicators – those who use pesticides to produce an agricultural commodity on property they or their employer owns or controls. Private applicators only need to be certified if they plan to purchase and apply Restricted Use Pesticides.  Certifications expire every 5 years.

How to get certified
1. Purchase a training manual for $30.00 at the Kenosha, Racine or Walworth County Extension office.
2. Attend an in-person training and exam session OR study on your own and schedule a test at your local Extension office.

Pre-registration required!  Complete the 2020 PAT registration form.
