Private Pesticide Applicator Training - Online - Hosted by Tim Schnakenberg


MU Extension is offering virtual training through a live Zoom meeting as an option for Private Applicator Training. This will meet EPA and MO Dept of Ag requirements. 

The private pesticide applicator license issued by the Missouri Dept of Agriculture is required for producers wanting to purchase and apply restricted use pesticides. Agricultural producers needing to obtain or renew certification of this license must take this pesticide safety training every five years. You must be 18 years of age and directly involved in the production of agricultural commodities to obtain this license. 

This class does not include the annual training required to apply synthetic auxin herbicides (i.e. dicamba) given by the registrants. See for more information.

This training also does not include the supplemental training required to apply paraquat dichloride. For more information see
