Pesticide Movement in the Environment

Welcome to this CEU on Pesticide Movement in the Environment. This Applicator Recertification CEU course will discuss essentials for all people who use pesticides both indoors and outdoors, in a rural or an urban area, to be fully aware of pesticides’ environmental implications. These applicators should ask themselves these important questions:

1. What is going to happen to a pesticide once it is out of its application equipment or container? Where is it going to go in the environment?

2. How will a pesticide affect the so-called non-target sites it inevitably reaches in the environment?

Go ahead and get started!

Learning Objectives:

The following is a list of the key points to be discussed within this course.

  • Understand environmental consequences associated with the pesticide application, including all relevant factors, such as drift, weather, groundwater and surface water, types of terrain, drainage patterns, soil, presence of non-target organisms and endangered species.
  • Understand how to minimize or prevent pesticide drift and/or runoff.
    Identify potentially sensitive areas that could be affected by pesticide-related activities, such mixing and loading, application, equipment washing, storage, and disposal.
  • Understand the importance of implementing procedures for prevention of residue accumulation, which is associated with equipment washing, mixing and loading.
  • When and how to adjust and/or delay an application in order to minimize environmental impacts and maximize its overall effectiveness.

Applicator Recertification Requirements

PRIVATE APPLICATORS, COMMERCIAL APPLICATORS, and CERTIFIED PUBLIC APPLICATORS must meet the following recertification requirements in order to maintain certification:

  • must attend approved training programs in order to accumulate recertification credits in CORE and appropriate CATEGORY-SPECIFIC topics at (3) year intervals.
  • (6) core credits and up to (10) category credits for each category in which the applicator is certified
  • (10) category specific credits are required for recertification under Demonstration and Research

Purchase our 6 Credit Core Bundle Today!

One Continuing Education Unit (CEU) equals (2) credits of educational instruction.

A CEU may be credited to more than one (1) category if it is approved in that(those) category(s); however, an applicator can not receive credit for the same course

An applicator who does not meet recertification credit requirements by the expiration date will no longer be permitted to make pesticide applications until the license is reinstated. The applicator is allowed up to one year to reinstate the license by obtaining the necessary recertification credits and paying the appropriate fees. Should the certification be expired longer than one-year period, reexamination is required for recertification.
