Applicators must complete credits for each category during at least two years of the five year certification period.

Applicators who hold a SINGLE CATEGORY must complete the total required credit hours for that category.

Applicators who hole MULTIPLE CATEGORIES must obtain the total required credits for the category with the highest credit requirement and three credit hours for each additional category.

DEMONSTRATION & RESEARCH (N) always requires 10 credit hours.

  • Applicators holding category N and one additional category must complete 10 credits for category N and the full credit requirement for the other category.
  • Applicators holding category N and multiple additional categories must complete 10 credits for category N, the full credit requirement for the highest credit requirement of the other categories, and three credits per additional other categories.

Exception: if a category is added in the same year of recertification, credits for the new category are not required for that certification period.
