Certification & Testing for Commercial Pesticide Applicators and Horticulturalists

Once the appropriate exams have been passed, one must apply for certification through this office. If an applicator plans to start a business in the state of Alabama, a license will also be required (professional services-main for structural categories; professional services-horticulture for OTPS, LD, SLP, and TS; and custom license for custom categories).

* Private Applicators - Please see last link under “links and resources” or visit your local county extension office in order to take private applicator training in order to apply for a new or renewed permit. To check the status of a private applicator permit once you have taken the training and sent in your application and certificate, please contact Dorothy Gresham at 334-240-7286.
