As leaders in our industry, we have Certified Technicians (CT) and/or Certified Commercial Pesticide Applicators (CCPA) licensed to apply plant health care materials in both New York and New Jersey. To become a CT, a candidate must complete a minimum of 8 hours training before going into the field as an apprentice. After either completing a minimum of two years experience as an apprentice or obtaining a related college degree, candidates must complete a thirty-hour training course and pass core and category competency exams. Only after years more experience, training and testing can CTs achieve the designation of CCPA. We help our CTs and CCPAs achieve and maintain their accreditations by offering training courses and continuing education credits.
