30 Hour Pesticide
Training for Ornamental & Turf 3a
Instructor Arnie Linzer
New York State Department of Environmental Conservation
(DEC) requires anyone applying pesticides to Ornamental and Turf to take the commercial pesticide applicators exam.
Who needs this certification?
If you use any pesticide as part of your lawn and shrub care business, you need to have this certification. For example if you use weed controls (Granular or Liquid), crabgrass pre-emergent, insect controls, and fungicides.
If you are using anything other than fertilizer and do not have this certification you are breaking the law and can be fined up to $5000.00 per violation.
It can take 8-12 weeks to get your certification in total. Two weeks for the class, two weeks to study and after passing both tests, up to 4 weeks for the DEC to mail you your id card.
