I want to be a Certified Commercial Applicator but I have no prior training or experience. Where do I begin?

The Commonwealth of Virginia restricts applicators from seeking certification as a commercial applicator if they have less than one year's experience.

If you have had no prior training or experience you need to begin at the Registered Technician (RT) level. You must hold a valid RT license for one year before applying to become a certified commercial applicator.
