Commercial Pesticide Applicator Information

The Kansas Pesticide Law requires people to obtain licenses to be Commercial Pesticide Applicators. Visit the Kansas Department of Agriculture site for more information.

Initial certification must be accomplished by taking an exam. For the current Commercial Certification Examination Schedule and to renew your Pesticide Applicator Certification, the applicator can either attend training, or retest, or reciprocate from MO, NE, OK, TX and IN, in selected categories if you are a resident of that state. Programs are available for recertification credit hours.
