To maintain your private pesticide applicator certification, you must either pass an exam every three years or attend an approved Private Continuing Instruction Course (P-CIC) between December 1 and April 15 each year your certification card covers.
The best option to maintain your certification is to attend a live P-CIC training customized to your location provided by Extension Field Agronomists. To register, call your County Extension Office to determine dates and any pre-registration requirements. In-person training is $30. In the event of bad weather please contact the County Extension Office for updates.
The Pesticide Safety Education Program (PSEP) is hosting three live-streamed P-CIC online trainings as an additional option to in-person training. To register, select one of the following dates and complete the registration form through the Iowa State University Extension Store.

- February 28, 1pm - https://store.extension.iastate.edu/product/16596
- April 4, 9am - https://store.extension.iastate.edu/product/16597
Please note that registration closes at 9am the day prior to each program. Live-stream training is $35. Contact PSEP at 515-294-1122 with any questions.
