DPR's Licensing and Certification Program is responsible for examining and licensing qualified applicators, aircraft pilots, pest control dealer designated agents, and agricultural pest control advisers; and for certifying pesticide applicators who use or supervise the use of restricted pesticides. It also licenses businesses that sell or apply pesticides or use pest control methods/devices for hire (i.e., pest control business, maintenance gardener pest control business, pest control dealer, and pesticide broker).

Visit the local County Agricultural Commissioner for private applicator certificate information.
Visit the Structural Pest Control Board for structural pest control licensing information.
