Continuing Instruction Courses for Commercial Pesticide Applicators

Welcome!


Continuing Instruction Courses for Commercial Pesticide Applicators Continuing Instruction Courses (CIC's) are designed for who desire to renew their Commercial Pesticide Applicator's Certificate by attending a class each year, as opposed to renewing by taking tests once every three years. CIC's are for applicators who are currently certified; if the certification has expired, testing is required for renewal. Applicators who are certified in multiple categories must attend a CIC approved for each category each year to avoid testing. If an applicator misses a CIC in one or more categories (but not all categories for which he/she is certified), he/she will be required to retest only in the categories where a complete record of CIC's does not exist. Applicators who attend no CIC's will be required to take the full complement of tests to renew their certificates. Many CIC's are approved for more than one category; this is especially true for categories that are closely related, such as 1A and 1B or 3O and 3T.

If your certificate expired on December 31, 2020, you will not need to take the test to renew your certificate if you attend(ed) a CIC in 2018, 2019, and 2020. If you miss(ed) one or more years, you will need to take the test to renew. If you have not received renewal information from the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship, contact them immediately.

If your certificate expires on December 31, 2021, you will not need to take the test to renew your certificate if you attend(ed) a CIC in 2019, 2020, and 2021. If you miss(ed) one or more years, you will need to take the test to renew.

If your certificate expires on December 31, 2022, you will not need to take the test to renew your certificate if you attend(ed) a CIC in 2020, 2021, and 2022. If you miss(ed) one or more years, you will need to take the test to renew.

If your certificate expires on December 31, 2023, you will not need to take the test to renew your certificate if you attend(ed) a CIC in 2021, 2022, and 2023. If you miss(ed) one or more years, you will need to take the test to renew.

All of the above assumes the law does not change between now and then, of course.

Opportunities are listed at https://www.extension.iastate.edu/psep/commercial-pesticide-applicator-information. All programs listed qualify for category 10. All will be video in most county offices unless otherwise noted. Check with your local office to determine if it will be hosting the video. If you are unable to attend on the scheduled day, most will be available on video media and may be viewed in an ISU Extension office. Contact the office in advance to schedule a time to assure that both the video media and equipment will be available. Current-year programs must be viewed before the close of business on the last office day of the year.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Iowa State University Extension Office.
