Montana private applicators in private applicator training (PAT) district one need 6 private applicator credits prior to the January 1 st , 2019 deadline to avoid losing their private applicator pesticide certification. This includes private applicators in Lincoln, Flathead, Sanders, Lake, Missoula, Mineral and Ravalli counties (Figure 1). Applicators can view their credit information on by selecting ‘pesticide programs’ and ‘pesticide license search’ by entering their license number. The Montana State University Pesticide Education Program (PEP) would like to announce multiple last chance private applicator credit opportunities for applicators in need of credits within or near PAT district 1. Online trainings, or on-site trainings in Havre, Townsend, or Dillon can aid PAT District 1 private applicators in attaining 6 credits prior to the January 1st deadline.
