Renewing Your Certification - Option 1:

One way to renew your certification (recertify) is to attend a private applicator Continuing Instruction Course (CIC) each of the three years during your renewal cycle. Check the mailing label for your certification number and expiration date. 

December 31, 2019 Expiration:

Attendance at CIC programs in 2017-18 and 2018-19 and attending a CIC program between December 2019 and April 15, 2020 qualifies you for recertification.

December 31, 2020 Expiration:

Attendance at a CIC program in 2018-19 and attending CIC programs in 2019-20 and 2020-21 qualifies you for recertification.

December 31, 2021 Expiration:

If you wish to recertify by training and not by exam, you must attend a CIC program each year, starting with the 2019-20 program year.

Renewing Your Certification - Option 2:

A second way to recertify is to pass the certification test every three years. If you miss one year of CIC programs, Iowa law requires you to retest when your certification expires. The exam is given by the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship (IDALS).

Test Dates and Locations-Offered by IDALS:

Please check the IDALS Pesticide Bureau website for testing dates and locations - www.iowaagriculture.gov/Pesticide/pesticidetesting.asp To find out your current certification status, call the IDALS Pesticide Bureau (515) 281-8591.
