Independent Virtual Training Format

Special Permit Training (SPT) for 2022 will be offered again this year in a virtual format. It will be the responsibility of the Supervisor/Certified Pesticide Applicator(s) on each farm to administer the pre-recorded training modules and written exam to their Special Permit trainees. This includes ensuring trainees follow along using the study sheets, participate in the practice test questions, and do not cheat on the exam.

Special Permits will only be issued for 8 specific pesticide labels. This will relieve the certified pesticide applicator from "on-site within voice contact" supervision of non-certified pesticide applicators when they are handling federally-restricted-use pesticides for which they hold a Special Permit. The labels that will be covered include:

  • Endigo ZC
  • Warrior II with Zeon Technology
  • Agri-Mek SC
  • Besiege
  • Leverage 360
  • Danitol 2.4EC
  • Mustang Maxx
  • Lannate LV

(no Gramoxone again this year. Asana XL & Lorsban are no longer registered)


All Pesticide Handlers Need to Complete Training and Pass Exam

This year, all pesticide handlers are required to complete the 3-hour training modules and pass the exam (70% correct or higher).


Registration Deadline - Sunday, April 3, 2022

CCE Lake Ontario Fruit Program is taking registration for this event. REGISTER NOW!


Training Completion & SPT Materials Submission Deadline - Monday, May 16, 2022

When you register, you will provide the names of all SPT trainees, and the supervisor/licensed pesticide applicator name and their pesticide license number. From your registration information, we will prepare customized paperwork for your farm SPT training. All of the necessary training materials and documents associated with Special Permit applications will be sent to your farm along with a private link to access the training modules. 

After completion of training modules and exam for each worker, Special Permit applications are to be submitted to Janet van Zoeren in CCE Orleans County. You will receive Special Permits for each worker who passed their exam in the mail from NYSDEC. Ideally, all farms will have completed SPT training and submitted their material by May 16, 2022.

If you have workers that continue to "trickle in" after your first round of training, it will absolutely be possible for you to train them and apply for their Special Permits at a later time. Please pre-register these workers at this time. Note, that your pesticide handlers do not need to be in the country for you to pre-register them by the deadline.   

If you have any issues with online registration or would like to register off-line, email Kim Hazel or call 585-798-4265 x126.
