Pesticide Private Applicator Training

Texas A&M AgriLife Extension will not conduct face to face programing through May 4th 2020 due to COVID 19 protocol passed down from Federal, State and Local government.

Private pesticide applicators must attend a training program offered by Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service. TDA approves Extension and certain private entities to conduct private applicator training. You will find contact information for all Extension offices here.

The following is a list of some of the private applicator training offered by Extension.

Individuals who are interested in attending private applicator training need to call the contact person listed for more training information. A proof of training form is given to those who complete the course.

Texas A&M AgriLife Extension offers the Texas Private Applicator Training Course online.  You will find more information at https://agrilifelearn.tamu.edu/product?catalog=AGCH-015
