Online Private Pesticide Applicator Training Now Available in Spanish
The Pesticide Safety Education Office with Nebraska Extension is pleased to share a new opportunity. Individuals who speak Spanish as their first language can now take pesticide safety training in Spanish through an online course. This training covers all required materials for an individual to get a private applicator’s license for restricted-use pesticides. This training is also accepted for individuals who wish to recertify a license.

Training is $50 and can be paid through the above link. Once payment has been submitted, you will receive two emails. When you register, it is important to use an email that you can access. Once registered, you must complete a form and provide proof of identification. To do this, take a photo of yourself holding your photo ID (driver’s license, passport or state ID) and upload it to the training website. Make sure the name and photo on the ID are visible so that the certifier can confirm that you are the person who took the training.
Once these steps are completed, you will watch a training video in Spanish and then submit a final applicant form.
Training is completed when the final form has been submitted. Once this is completed, the Nebraska Department of Agriculture (NDA) will receive and process the information and then mail you a postcard. The postcard will have directions to pay for the license. A private applicator’s license costs $25. Once the license has been paid for, the NDA will issue the license to the address that you listed during the training on the applicant form.
