Attendance at this conference will only recertify applicators in Agricultural Pest Control and Demonstration and Research Ag Pest Control. This conference will not recertify Agricultural Consultant or Aerial Applicator categories.

There will be a $75 registration fee for attendance for recertification only. The registration fee to attend both days (for original certification) is $100. The registration fee should be made payable to the LSU AgCenter and must be a check or money order.

Those applicators needing to take the certification examinations should plan to attend both days. The certification examinations will only be administered at a LDAF district office or in Baton Rouge at the main office. The application for testing can be found at:
