Certification Requirements

This training satisfies the US EPA requirement for mandatory dicamba applicator training as well as the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) requirement for auxin specific training for approved dicamba and 2,4-D formulations. This training is not a substitute for the state-specific Certified Applicator training, which is required to purchase and use Restricted Use Pesticides. Additionally, this training qualifies for 1 CEU of laws and regs and successful certification permits use of approved auxin formulation for the 2020 season only.

To receive the certificate of completion for this course, participants must obtain a score of 100% on the online Auxin Specific Applicator Test. Participants may retake the test as often as is necessary.
