Course Approval for Continuing Education Credits

Out Door Training

An organization, association, industry group, state and federal agencies, and individual applicators can submit a training course for consideration of Montana Continuing Education credits. All courses need to provide a balanced program for applicators and dealers, which means courses should include at least 4-5 of the 8 items in the Standards for Pesticide Training (see link below). For sponsors providing yearly training, this balance can be achieved over an extended time frame (3-4 years). Montana now accepts submittals for online trainings and webinars!


Course information must be submitted through our ePass online system. Please refer to the following instructions to request continuing education credits for courses and trainings. Supporting documents can be found below.
