Pesticide Training Dates Now Available
Pesticide Training and Testing dates for the 2017/2018 season are now available!  

In Kentucky, it is required that any person handling, applying or supervising the use of pesticides as part of that person's job must be certified and licensed by the Kentucky Department of Agriculture.  Non-commercial pesticide applicators must complete 12 hours of training over a three-year period to remain certified.  T2 is offering training and testing in Categories 3, 5 and 6 and continuing education for Categories 3, 5, 6 and 18.
