Pesticide Private Applicator Training

April 2, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm


This course is designed for people who wish to obtain a Private Pesticide Applicator License with the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA).  Along with the course, you will also receive the Texas Private Applicator Manual (B-1648) as well as the laws and regulations manual (B-5056).  The manuals are utilized during the course.

At the conclusion of the course you will receive documentation to be used in securing a test date.

A private pesticide applicator is someone who uses or supervises the use of restricted-use or state-limited-use pesticides or regulated herbicides to produce an agricultural commodity on:

  •     Personally owned property
  •     Rented property
  •     Property owned by his or her employer
  •     Property under his or her general control or
  •     The property of another person if applied without compensation, other than the trading of personal services between producers of agricultural commodities.

An agricultural commodity is a plant or animal grown for sale, lease, barter, feed or human consumption and animals raised for farm or ranch work. No license is required to apply general-use pesticides to produce agricultural commodities.

Important: If an applicant has any questions about licensing or exam categories, please contact TDA at 1-800-835-5832 or 512-463-7622.
