If your private pesticide applicator certification has recently expired, or will expire soon, you need to register for re-certification.  

You must re-certify before your expiration date if you want to continue to use restricted-use pesticides. (Check your certification card for the exact date.)

How do I re-certify?  Portage County UW-Extension is offering three one-day training sessions at which you will be able to view video presentations and complete the test.
