After completing this section, agents are advised to look at the TRAINER TOOLS page under the "AGENT" tab for resources to help you organize a pesticide applicator training program. You should also work closely with an experienced colleague until you gain experience with these programs.
Agents and specialists are required to be certified in "Category 10 Demonstration & Research Pest Control" as a matter of VCE policy (and in most cases, as a matter of state law) if you are working with pest management or pesticide safety education programs. We list several resources here to help you. If you have questions, please contact VTPP for assistance.
