Pesticide Training

Certification and Recertification Training for pesticide applicators and registered technicians is offered regionally by the VCE Northern District Horticulture Agents throughout the year.

In Northern Virginia, Pesticide Certification Training is offered in late fall/early winter.  Recertification trainings are usually offered in June. See the VDACS webpage for Schedule of Virginia Approved Commercial Recertification Training Courses in Virginia.

Private Applicators may take the Private Exam at the local Extension office.  To make an appointment, please call or email the Agriculture and Natural Resources (ANR) Extension Agent at 703-792-4671
