Pesticide Applicator Training and Testing amid COVID-19 Restrictions

The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) is suspending pesticide certification testing as of March 18, 2020. Exams scheduled on and after March 18, 2020,​ are canceled. If you have scheduled a certification exam do not go to the testing location.

 If your certification expires January 31-May 31, 2020, DATCP is extending your certification until June 30, 2020. You can continue to operate as a certified applicator until June 30, 2020.

 New applicators who are eligible can submit a 30-Day Temporary Trainee Registration Form to work under the supervision of a certified applicator. The 30-day limit will be extended until June 30, 2020, for all temporary registration applications received March 18-June 1, 2020.

Dodge County Extension will offer a PAT training session at a future date for applicators whose licenses will expire on June 30th. Contact Joe Zimbric by email at or by phone at 920-296-6583 with any questions.
