WHY CHOOSE CERTIFIED TRAINING INSTITUTE
Certified Training Institute is quickly becoming a leader in online pesticide continuing education. Our online pesticide safety continuing education is approved in 22 states (and counting!). Our customized Learning Management System (LMS) provides an intuitive system for applicators. We make it easy to complete the required education to maintain an applicator's license and keep track of the certificates.
• TRAINING TOPICS IN DEMAND
We are looking for dynamic presenters to share their knowledge and take their training to an online presentation.
With 50 hours of training, we've only just begun to scratch the surface of the training needed to satisfy all applicator requirements across the country. At this time, we are looking for weed/pest control training in the following areas:
- Regional Noxious Weed Control
- Forest Pest Management
- Wood preservation/treatment
- Agricultural tree/fruit crop
- Agricultural row/field crop
- Agricultural animal
- Sewer Line management
- Seed Treatment
To avoid content overlap, please be sure to review our current course list below before selecting your course topics.
• WHAT'S IN IT FOR YOU?
Aside from getting in on the ground floor of a fast-growing industry, Certified Training Institute will pay you 15% of every sale of your course! This is a great opportunity to generate revenue for your program or income for yourself!
• HOW DO I GET STARTED?
Please read through The Course Author Introduction Packet. Then, give us a call at 800-727-7104. Our Education Coordinator, Jenny MacDowell, will be pleased to have a conversation with you and get the process started.
Once you have your course (or courses) ready to go and you've sent us an outline, PowerPoint presentation and questions, we'll schedule a time for you to come to our in-house studio to film your course. We'll cover the cost of your lodging, so all you have to do is get yourself to Traverse City, MI. You'll come in, film the course, and then our production team will work their magic. Once the course is ready, our education development team will go to work getting it approved for credit nationwide. We currently offer pesticide safety education in 22 states, and are in the process of adding more.
We are looking forward to working with you!

A WORD TO PESTICIDE SAFETY EDUCATION PROFESSIONALS from Mississippi State University Extension
"They [Certified Training Institute] have shown us a better, more time conscious way to format training materials for better retention by our students and perhaps most importantly, have shown us how to market to and reach the incredible magnitude of need in the national market for high quality, nuts and bolts, user friendly training and have done so in a manner that is fiscally prudent and profitable for even a budget as small as ours."
