Pesticide Safety & IPM Training

One of the major functions of the Division of Agriculture's Pesticides unit is to certify and license commercial pesticide applicators for all pesticides, and certify private applicators for restricted-use or state limited-use pesticides. For more information on who needs certification, please see our FAQs page.

The University of Rhode Island has announced their latest Pesticide Safety and IPM Training schedule. All training classes will be held at URI's East Farm location, 2095 Kingstown Road, Building 75, Wakefield, RI. Prior to being licensed/certified, applicants are required to attend core training, which consists of two days with an exam at the conclusion of the second day. Pre-registration by mail is required.
