The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) is suspending pesticide certification testing as of March 18, 2020. Exams scheduled on and after March 18, 2020, are canceled. If you have scheduled a certification exam do not go to the testing location.
If your certification expires January 31-May 31, 2020, DATCP is extending your certification until October 31, 2020. You can continue to operate as a certified applicator until October 31, 2020.
New applicators who are eligible can submit a 30-Day Temporary Trainee Registration Form to work under the supervision of a certified applicator.
The 30-day limit will be extended until June 30, 2020, for all temporary registration applications received March 18-June 1, 2020.
Pesticide applicator testing will resume at a future date. To receive updates about certified pesticide applicator information and requirements, subscribe to DATCP’s email list.
