Paraquat Training – Mandatory

Paraquat Online Training Option

The use of paraquat, which is a restricted use pesticide, is restricted to certified pesticide applicators only; non-certified persons working under the supervision of a certified applicator are PROHIBITED from using paraquat, including mixing, loading, applying the pesticide, and other pesticide-related activities.
The EPA has approved an online training, for use by certified applicators, to bring them into compliance. This is subject to change and will be updated soon.
For help with completing this training, please follow this Step by Step Guide to the Online Paraquat Training.
