One option to requalify for licensing is to obtain 12 continuing education credits (CEs) for each license category. One way to track your credits is through the use of the department's web application that is listed under Links below. Licensed Applicators, and Dealers, can view courses approved for their license category and they can also enter their license number to view the recertification credits that they have accumulated in the current period.
