All Uses of Paraquat Require Special Training
The EPA now requires that applicators as well as those mixing or handling paraquat-containing pesticides to be a certified applicator that has completed a paraquat-specific training program. The training is only available online.
The process should take about 30-45 minutes. Simply register, fill out the contact information and begin the quiz. FFirst-time registrants will need to verify registration via an instant email link sent to the provided email address. (If the web link redirects you from the paraquat training page, simply type in “paraquat” in the search box and this should take you back to the training module). When finished, print the certificate of completion provided and keep this with pesticide records.
