Training videos for recertification will include category specific, up-to-date information provided by ODA, Ohio State University Specialists, Field Specialists, and Extension Educators. The cost for online training is $35 for private applicators and $10 for fertilizer recertification. The price per credit hour for commercial applicators is $15. Your license number or applicator ID will be required to complete the recertification process. If you don’t know your license number, please contact ODA at 614-728-6987, choose option 1.
Applicators are still required to meet their recertification requirements to renew licenses and certifications. As a result of HB 197, applicators have until 90 days after the emergency is over or December 1, whichever comes first, to complete their requirements. Recertification status can be checked online here. Applicators must also submit a completed renewal application and pay an additional fee to the ODA for licensure.
If you have questions about Pesticide or Fertilizer certification or recertification, pleas contact the OSU Extension Greene County Office at 937-372-9971 and ask for Trevor Corboy.
