Pesticide classes offered


The Colorado Department of Agriculture has organized more than 20 classes around Colorado so people can gain licenses as commercial pesticide applicators.

The testing fee is $75 and each site is limited to 10 applicants. Reservations will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis. Appointments must be made with the Department of Agriculture at least one week prior to the test date. Dates will be canceled if there are no registrations seven days prior to the testing day. All tests are scheduled to begin at

8 a.m. unless otherwise noted.

Test administrators will wait for registrants and walk-ins at the site until 10 a.m. Contact Lenora Lancaster at (303) 239-4148 to register for testing. In Colorado, individuals interested in applying for a private pesticide applicator license should contact Dick Loesch with the Environmental Protection Agency in Region VII, at (303) 312-7283 or via e-mail at
