Private applicators are individuals who spray restricted use pesticides or apply manure from a confined feeding operation (CFO) to their own land. The license is active for a period of five years. Private applicators must attend three private applicator recertification programs (PARPs) within that five year period to keep their license active and avoid the need to re-test. No more than two programs may be attended for credit in any one calendar year.
