How many credits do I need?
Recertification credits are accumulated based on attendance at approved meetings and other appropriate training venues. To maintain pesticide certification, applicators must accumulate recertification credits at three year intervals. Regardless of the category of certification, each applicator must accumulate six CORE credits. The number of category specific credits required for recertification varies from category to category. Specific requirements can be found on the Pennsylvania Pesticide Applicator Certification page. Private applicators need six CORE credits and six category credits from any of the following categories: 1-9, and 22. For private applicators with fumigation certification, two of the required six category credits must be specific to fumigation.
