Nevada Pesticide Applicator Certification and Training Program
Welcome to the Nevada Pesticide Applicator Certification and Training website. This site was developed to help pesticide applicators obtain and retain their certification.
The requirements for certification and the recertification process are outlined under regulatory information. A link to the Nevada Department of Agriculture pesticide training and testing is included, with an explanation of the continuing education requirement (CEU's).
You'll find the entire National Pesticide Applicator Certification core manual educational materials, including review questions, and the accompanying PowerPoint presentations to aid your certification quest. Additional education materials specific to Nevada are also included.
A list of publications specific to Nevada pesticide safety and a list of additional web resources are included.
A link for pesticide label search, via the Crop Data Management System website, is also here for your convenience.
NEW: The 2013 update of the Nevada Pesticide Applicator's Certification Workbook is now available online! The manuals will also be available for sale as a set at each county University of Nevada Cooperative Extension office by the end of June 2013. As in the past, we will sell the Nevada Pesticide Applicator's Certification Workbook AND the National Pesticide Applicator Certification Core Manual as a set for $15.00. All the materials are available on this site for free download.
For those who have purchased the 2009 edition of the Nevada Pesticide Applicator's Certification Workbook, you may turn in that copy at any University of Nevada Cooperative Extension Office and receive a 2013 copy for FREE. Any older versions of the manual may NOT be turned in for a new copy; the new 2013 manual will have to be purchased or downloaded from this website.
