How do I renew my Oklahoma pesticide applicator certification?

Re-certification for certified applicators, service technicians, and private applicators is based on predetermined five-year cycles of certification periods. These certification periods determine the expiration dates of an individual's certification. An applicator's personal certification is in effect until the category re-certifies.

Re-certification for certified applicators is possible through two channels:

-Applicator takes the written category exam (each test is updated every five years)


-Applicator collects enough CEU’s to re-certify in a category

Please note: At this time service technicians and private applicators can re-certify only through written examination
