Texas A&M Agrilife Extension Service in Blanco County will sponsor a Private Applicator License training and testing program on Tuesday January 29th in Johnson City. The program will be held at the Hoppe Room, Courthouse Annex, beginning at 8:00am. The training portion will conclude at 12:00 noon. Lunch will be on your own, and we will resume at 1:00pm with the testing. The test usually takes about an hour to complete.
All farm and ranch operators who need a Private Applicators License to purchase “restricted use or state limited use” pesticides are invited to attend this program.
Please RSVP the Extension office (830) 868-7167 by Friday the 25th at 5:00pm. The cost is $60.00 to cover the materials and handbooks. These are yours to keep as a reference. Once you pass the test, the license is good for 5 years. The license fee is $60.00 to be paid to the Texas Department of Agriculture. During this 5 year period you will be required to complete 15 hours of Continuing Education (CEUs) in order to recertify.
