Pesticide Applicator Certificate Training

Pesticide Applicator Certificate Training

The College of Agriculture, Urban Sustainability and Environmental Sciences (CAUSES), of the University of the District of Columbia (UDC), is collaborating with the Department of Energy and Environment (DOEE) to offer training for the CORE pesticide application certification. Participants will be provided with study materials, informational lectures, and are eligible for a personal protective equipment raffle. Participants must attend all trainings scheduled for the week.

The purpose of this training is to prepare participants to take the pesticide certification exam for recertification or to obtain a pesticide applicator license from DOEE. The training will supply participants with general knowledge of proper management practices concerning pesticide use.

Pesticide use includes the receipt, handling, mixing, storage, record keeping and disposal of pesticides while following all necessary safety precautions. Participants must be able to read and understand all label information, including application and use directions, formulations, storage, and disposal hazards, precautionary statements, and statements of practical treatment.
