Commercial Pesticide Applicator Training

commercial pesticide Fall 2020 schedule

Recertification by Continuing Instruction Course (CIC)

For commercial applicators, C-CICs are offered on a calendar-year basis.
 
C-CICs are presented in the following formats: live programs and prerecorded blu-ray discs. The following programs are available as statewide video programs with fixed presentation dates: Commercial Agricultural Weed, Insect and Plant Disease; Ornamental & Turf Applicators; Roadside, Forest and Aquatic Pest Management; Fumigation; Seed Treatment; Certified Handlers; Mosquito and Public Health Pest Management; and Pest Control Operators.
 
Applicators needing Aerial Applicator certification and those needing Greenhouse and Ornamental Applicator certification need to contact their local extension office to arrange a time to watch these C-CIC programs.
 
Category 1D (Fruit and Vegetable) is available live once a year at the Iowa Fruit and Vegetable Growers Conference, usually in January.
 
Also, please note recertification by video C-CIC in the county extension is not offered in 1E (Animal Pest Control) and 7E (Wood Preservatives). Recertification in these categories are TEST ONLY.
 
If C-CICs are missed in one or more years of their three-year cycle, the applicator is required to take the certification exam(s) to renew his or her certification. C-CICs cannot be “made up” if an applicator forgets to attend in a given year, nor can an applicator attend two C-CICs in one year to cover future years’ requirements.
