Pesticide Vendor Certificate
Any business that is licensed to sell pesticides must employ staff that have a pesticide vendor certificate. Two types of certificates are available:
- a domestic pesticide vendor certificate for employees of businesses that sell domestic class pesticides, and
- a non-domestic pesticide vendor certificate for employees of businesses that sell commercial, restricted, or manufacturing class pesticides.
What are the requirements?
To obtain a domestic or non-domestic pesticide vendor certificate, you must:
- be 18 years of age; and
- successfully complete a written exam (mark of 75 per cent or higher).
What are the fees?
$75. There is no HST. Make cheques payable to the Minister of Finance. Certificates are valid for a maximum period of five years.
How do I renew my certificate?
You must successfully re-write the exam to renew your certificate.
Training material is available for individuals wishing to study for a domestic or non-domestic pesticide certificate exam. Training materials for vendors are available for free. Printed copies can be purchased from the Department of Communities, Land and Environment.
