The courses are tailored for category credits based upon need following the annual renewal forms distributed through NJDEP Bureau of Pesticide Control in late summer. You can find out now if you'll be needing re-certification credits by logging onto the Bureau's site and clicking on to the Commercial Certified Pesticide Applicators - Specific Information.
