UNH Cooperative Extension will host a series of all-day training workshops in September 2020 for those seeking a supervisory registration certificate - general use from the state’s Division of Pesticide Control. Individuals wishing to obtain this certification need to participate in a series of training classes, pass a written and oral exam, and show proof of insurance.

Training will prepare participants for the state of NH certification exam. Instructors will provide a review of the information found in the National Pesticide Applicator Certification Core Manual and NH Code of Administrative Rules during the Core class. Trainings will be offered for the following categories: Core (2 dates offered, you only need to enroll in one of those two), Shade & Ornamental (G1), Turf (G2), Forestry (C1), Right Of Way (B) and Mosquito & Black Fly (F2).

New Hampshire requires that anyone applying pesticides commercially must be certified as a commercial pesticide applicator. This certification is required regardless of whether the applicator gets paid for the service or the pesticide is classified as general or restricted use. This includes over-the-counter homeowner-type pesticides.

Because of the present COVID-19 pandemic and the protocols put into effect by the University of New Hampshire we will be changing how the trainings will be conducted. We have evaluated each class and will be implementing some changes. Each class will now feature a session of ONLINE instruction, and a separate session of IN-PERSON face to face learning. These will be held on different days to accommodate people who need to travel to the IN-PERSONsessions. Participants must commit to attending both the ONLINE and IN-PERSON sessions in order to receive the Certificate of Attendance.  

  • Each IN-PERSON session will be limited to ten participants and two staff members. If there are enough sign-ups, we will hold another IN-PERSONsession on the same day for a category (1 session in the morning for 10 people, and another repeat session in the afternoon for 10 people)
  • Cloth or disposable face coverings must be worn by staff and by participants.
  • Participants will maintain a distance of at least six feet from each other.
  • Hand sanitizer and handwashing stations will be made available to participants and they will be instructed to wash or use sanitizer before and after wearing gloves.

COVID-19 Info: There are IN-PERSON sessions for these events. Participants will need to go online before the event and attest to their health and body temperature. Face coverings will be required at this event.
