Beginning November 2017, Utah Department of Agriculture and Food (UDAF) changed the pesticide applicator licensing requirements. Applicators are now required to complete study materials before taking the required exams.To help applicators with this change, we have created online courses that fulfill UDAF’s requirements. We have created 16 courses that combine the Core (or General) material with each of the 16 pesticide categories.
Applicators have to enroll in ONE of the Core + “category” courses and pass the 2 exams in order to complete UDAF’s educational requirements for a license. You will only need to enroll in ONE of these courses.
If an applicator needs to add additional categories to the license, he/she DOES NOT need to enroll in more than one Core + “category” course. Additional Category Courses have been created so that you can add categories to your license without having to take the Core Material and exam more than one time.
Only take the Additional Category Courses after you have passed the core exam in one of the Core + “category” Courses.
