Pesticide License Basics

Every pesticide licensee has to take the Core test. Turf and Ornamentals licensees must take the Turf and Ornamental test. You will need both books and they can be ordered online.


Landscapers and Turf Managers – A Turf and Ornamental Category L Pesticide License requires 10 hours of recertification per 5 year period.

Plant Nursery Producers (farmers) – A Private Applicator License V/X requires 2 hours each Private (V – Safety, X – Specialty) per 3 years.

Total credits CANNOT be earned during the same calendar year for Category L. This rule DOES NOT apply to Farmers (Private Applicators).
