Swimming Pool Pesticide Applicator Training Program

Exam Preparation & CORE/Category 24 Recertification

PORH offers the Swimming Pool Pesticide Applicators Certification and Recertification Training Program in partnership with the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture and the Pennsylvania State University’s Pesticide Education Program. The certification program offers classroom training for those preparing for the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture’s pesticide application exam. Swimming pool pesticide applicators learn how to safely apply pesticides at public bathing facilities. Recertification is offered to those interested in obtaining continuing education credits in order to maintain certification in the CORE category (Pesticide Regulations and Health Safety Information) and in Category 24 (Swimming Pool Information Updates).

Due to COVID restrictions, we have limited capability of offering in-person classes at this time.
