The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) Pesticide Control Program (PCP) regulations contain information on the training requirements for new (never licensed) commercial applicators and/or operators, as well as the requirements for currently licensed persons and those who have not maintained their license. Under these regulations, a new commercial applicator or operator must attend a PCP-approved basic pesticide training course (such as Core, which is described below) and complete forty (40) hours of on-the-job training in the functions and operations associated with the category of license the individual is seeking to obtain. Recertification of a currently-licensed New Jersey commercial pesticide applicator/ operator is maintained by completing recertification courses in both Core (eight units) and the category being recertified for (sixteen units) within a five-year period.

Topics covered during this half-day (four hour) course include:

  • Federal pesticide laws
  • The New Jersey Pesticide Control Act
  • What is IPM?
  • Pesticide hazards and how to minimize them
  • Proper handling, storage and disposal of pesticides and
  • Types of application equipment and use.

This course satisfies New Jersey’s requirement of attending a basic pesticide training course for new applicants.
