How can you transition from a Supervisory Registration Certificate – General Use to a Supervisory Registration Certificate?

David Rousseau, New Hampshire Division of Pesticide Control Director, answered this question. "In order to transition from Supervisory Registration Certificate – General Use to a Supervisory Registration Certificate an applicant is required to complete a resume form and a Commercial Pesticide Applicator Application. Once the resume form is received by the Division of Pesticide Control and determined satisfactory the applicant can apply for a Supervisory Registration Certificate using the Commercial Pesticide Applicator Application.

Given that the applicant is required to take a written and an oral exam to satisfy the Supervisory Registration Certificate – General Use license standard, there is no exam requirement to transition into a Supervisory Registration Certificate, provided the experience or experience/education requirement is met. However, given that the two licenses differ, an applicant is required to complete the resume form and the Commercial Pesticide Applicator Application to request the Supervisory Registration Certificate license. That is, the transition from Supervisory Registration Certificate – General Use to Supervisory Registration Certificate is not automatic. An individual must apply for the license. The current license fee is $20.

In summary, transitioning from a Supervisory Registration Certificate – General Use to a Supervisory Registration Certificate requires the applicant to successfully complete a resume form and a Commercial Pesticide Applicator Application. Provided the experience or experience plus education requirement is met there is no additional exam requirement when transitioning from a Supervisory Registration Certificate – General Use to a Supervisory Registration Certificate.
