Event Registration



Special Permit Training is back in-person this year. Special Permits (SP) 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 8 specific labels covered:

  • Endigo ZCX
  • Warrior II with Zeon Technology
  • Agri-Mek SC
  • Besiege
  • Leverage 360
  • Danitol 2.4EC
  • Mustang Maxx
  • Lannate LV
  • (no Gramoxone again this year and Lorsban is no longer registered)

All pesticide handlers need to complete the training and pass the exam!

This year, all pesticide handlers are required to complete the 3-hour in person training and pass the exam given at the training (with 70% correct or higher). Certified Supervisors are required to attend the first 30 minutes of training. 

New York DEC notes that the Special Permit process is intended for farm workers with English language skills that are not adequate to pass the DEC private applicators exam. All others are encouraged to apply for their private applicators license via taking the certification exam. 

Workers in need of special permits vs general pesticide training will need to be identified. Workers requiring general pesticide training/Agricultural Worker Protection Standard Handler training who do not need Special Permits are welcome to take the class; they will not be tested and will receive a course participation certificate. 

Separate English and Spanish sessions are offered in Wayne County:

  • English session: 8:30 am check-in; 9:00 am - 12:30 pm training
  • Spanish session: 1:00 pm check-in; 1:30 pm - 5:00 pm training

Cost

COST if pre-register by April 4, 2023: $30 per applicator/handler.
COST if pre-register April 5 - 7, 2023: $50 per applicator/handler. Registrations will not be accepted after April 7th.
