Welcome to the 2021 Virginia Online Private Applicator Recertification Course! In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and conversations with Virginia Cooperative Extension Agents across the state, Virginia Tech Pesticide Programs developed an online course option for the upcoming Private Applicator Recertification season. This course is not meant to replace in-person recertification meetings! This is a supplemental option for clientele who cannot attend in-person meetings. Unlike traditional in-person trainings, you are able to take breaks between modules and quiz attempts. We encourage you to take advantage of being able to take your time with completing this course. The goal is to stay up to date and refreshed on Pesticide Safety, Legal Updates, and Pest Management & Application Technology.
This virtual course is self-paced, but must be completed within the timeframe of the course schedule (May 1 – September 30, 2021).
Because this course is virtual with access given through an emailed VCE Canvas guest account invitation upon registration and confirmation of enrollment, all participants must register for the course with individualized data (one email address per registrant - no duplicate email address usage).
