Each certified structural technician is required to obtain two (2) units in general training and one (1) unit in each category in which the applicator is certified. Of the two (2) general training units required for recertification, at least one (1) must be in federal and state laws, pesticide safety, environmental protection, or integrated pest management. The other may be in any general topic.
Technicians will not be required to obtain units during the first calendar year in which their license is issued. Applicators who become certified in additional categories during any calendar year period will not be required to obtain units in those categories for that period.
Certified technicians who do not meet the recertification requirements will have their licenses suspended in all deficient categories for one (1) year or until all deficiencies are corrected, and they must then re-qualify by taking the certification examination.
