Training for Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) private pesticide applicator licenses will be held in the Fort Worth Room at the Tarrant County Extension Office on Wednesday, July 13, 2016. Training begins promptly at 8 a.m. and will be completed by 12 noon. Pre-registration is required by calling the Tarrant County Extension Office at 817.884.1946 or on-line at: http://agrilife.org/urbantarrantag/program-registration. The four-hour training at the Tarrant County Extension Office will give participants the necessary information to take the private applicator license test. Any agricultural producer or land owner who applies restricted use pesticides to their own property needs a private pesticide applicators license and may participate. Persons seeking to acquire a private pesticide applicator’s license must attend a private applicator training class prior to their test date. Cost for the training and study materials in Tarrant County is $50. Contact the Tarrant County Extension Office to register and receive your training manuals in advance. The Tarrant County Extension Office is located at 200 Taylor St., Suite 500 in Fort Worth. Since the Texas Department of Agriculture has contracted with a third-party testing service to administer the exams for agricultural pesticide applicator licensing, we no longer have testing available immediately after the training. The closest locations for testing will be in Fort Worth and Arlington. For more information contact your local Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service Office. In Tarrant County that number is 817.884.1946.
