  =======================================================

If you have received a “bar-coded” letter from the NE Dept. of Agriculture about your need to re-certify, please bring this letter to the private applicator training session. This letter will save you time and may be substituted for the NDA “bubble” application form.

 PLEASE NOTE:      Upon completion of your private pesticide applicator training the Nebraska Department of Agriculture (NDA) will receive your application form and then send you a billing invoice for the $25.00 state license fee.  The license fee covers the 3-year certification period.  Upon receipt of the license fee payment, the NDA will issue your pesticide license card to you.  All dollars collected by the NDA in license fees are transferred for use by Nebraska Natural Resource Districts in their educational programs. Your NDA pesticide license card is required for the purchase and use of restricted use pesticides.
