What are CEUs?
CEUs are continuing education units. You can renew your pesticide applicator license by obtain CEUs or retaking the pesticide license exams. CEUs keep you up to date on the latest information regarding the application of pesticides in Florida as it relates to the license you hold. You can get CEUs for participation in different educational trainings or activities. UF/IFAS Extension as well as other outside organizations offer pesticide CEUs.
How many CEUs do I need?
It depends on your license! For each pesticide license, you need a certain number of CORE CEUs and category CEUs. Category CEUs are specific to your license. For example, if you hold an Ornamental and Turf license, you need Ornamental and Turf category CEUs. Check out this chart for more information on how many CEUs you need for your license.
