Pest Control License
Just like nurses and educators, certified pesticide applicators have to engage in ongoing professional development. Every few years, they must prove they’ve engaged in continuing education to qualify for pest control license renewal. Pest Control Courses is a superior source of online re-certification courses for the busy pest control professional.
In order to secure pest control license renewal, applicators have to complete a predetermined amount of continuing education units. This requirement encourages applicators to stay engaged in their field and continually learn about new technologies, protocols and procedures
The online classes available through Pest Control Courses have earned state approval in Texas. We cover a breadth of information in the field of pest control. But because regulations can vary among states and even applicator types, Pest Control Courses offers three courses for specific applicators.
In the state of Texas, private applicators must obtain at least 15 CEUs in order to qualify for pest control license renewal. Of the 15 courses, at least 2 credits must include laws and regulations, and another 2 credits must cover integrated pest management.
Agricultural commercial and noncommercial applicators have to earn 5 CEUs before renewing their pesticide applicator license. At least 1 credit each must come from at least two of the following categories – integrated pest management, laws and regulations, and/or drift minimization.
Pest Control Courses® offers an online 8-hour/CEU course for the structural technician that wishes to renew his license to apply pesticides. Please note that Structural certified pesticide applicators must attend live continuing education classes and will receive no credit for completing one of our online courses.
With available courses in pesticide safety, federal and state laws, and emergency procedures, CEUs through Pest Control Courses cover all the necessary content for pest control license renewal. However, it is the applicator’s responsibility to show proof of completion. That’s why for the majority of our courses, you’ll receive an instant certification of completion. Print out the certificate and keep in a safe place until it’s time to submit.

How Our Pest Control Training Courses Work:
Register and pay for one of our Virginia pest control training courses. This involves creating a username and password.
Next, you will start the course. The first screen will have a vertical listing of the lesson titles for the course you signed up for. In Virginia, if you are a commercial applicator, then there will be 8 lesson titles listed vertically in large black and white lettering in the middle of the screen.
Select the first listing and you will be taken to that lesson; it will be a few pages long. Read the lesson and at the bottom of the lesson in a long, skinny, rectangular box will be the word “Test” followed by the lesson title.
Select (click on) the test to begin the 10 question multiple choice quiz that goes with the lesson. After answering the tenth and final question, find the button at the bottom, right-hand side of the page that is labeled “Finish”.
Click on the “Finish” button to score the quiz and save your answers. A score of 70 or above must be achieved before being allowed to advance to the next lesson. When a person scores a 60 or lower, he is returned to the beginning and must retake the quiz until scoring a 70 or better. There is no limit to how many times a person may retake a quiz.
Click on the “Continue” bar to check off the lesson just completed and to advance to the next lesson.
**If one wishes to take take a break at some point that is fine but be sure to click on the “Continue” bar after passing a lesson test before taking a break. This will mark off this last completed lesson. Failing to do so will result in having to re-do the last lesson completed when one logs back in to our site.**
When a student completes and scores his final quiz, he will be taken to a screen where he can print his continuing education certificate.
Be sure to maintain a copy of your Continuing Education Certificate on file. You will need to show this certificate to the official in the event you are audited.
