Initial private applicator trainings are seven-hour training opportunities for individuals to learn more about pesticides while qualifying for a Montana private applicator license. A private applicator license allows individuals to apply restricted-use pesticides on land they own, rent or lease to grow an agricultural commodity. Applicators who are recertifying may also attend the entire event for six private applicator credits. Each program covers integrated pest management, pesticides in the environment, pesticide safety and toxicity, pesticide law, calibration of pesticide spray equipment, the private applicator license and reading the pesticide product label.
Information about MSU Extension’s initial private applicator trainings, including locations and agendas, and start and end times for each location, is available at montana.edu/extension/pesticides/events/index.html. Fees listed are for the event and materials only. If attendees desire a private applicator license, they must also pay a license fee that varies by district.
