Due to changes in Extension staffing capacity across the state, the Pesticide Applicator Training Program has changed some things about how applicators certify (or recertify):
- Pesticide Applicator Training manuals are now only available either through mail order or online from the UW Pesticide Applicator Training Program.
Online: https://patstore.wisc.edu/secure/default.asp, select desired Private Applicator training material
Mail Order: https://fyi.extension.wisc.edu/pat/files/2019/05/Private-Order-Form.pdf
- If applicators would like to attend an in-person training, those are now also all being conducted by the UW PAT Program. They can visit the UW Extension events calendar (https://fyi.extension.wisc.edu/pat/events/) to register.
- If applicators would like to attend an online training, registration is also on the UW PAT Store (https://go.wisc.edu/greo5e).
- If applicators would like the self-study option (must get a 70% on exam), tests are being provided at select county Extension offices. They can visit the UW PAT Program website (https://fyi.extension.wisc.edu/pat/county-testing-sites/) for the full list of participating counties.
Extension Wood County is providing exams by appointment only. Please contact us at 715-421-8440 to schedule.
