Alabama Dept. of Ag and Industries offers on-line renewal and payment for Certified and Commercial Pesticide Applicator Licenses


By Ashley Lovell, Editor
ADAI has stepped into the future by offering an online renewal option for pesticide applicator licenses. It has also updated permit numbers and the look of the license itself. The process is relatively painless, although take care never to hit the ―back‖ browser button or re-submit credit card information, EVEN if the site warns you that there was an error transmitting your card num-ber. Your card may, in fact, be charged multiple times, and getting a timely refund is impossible. Visit to renew or to check your point totals. I was able to see that I was short 10 points and take a quick course to bring my point total to 30 in order to renew. There are several last-minute courses available at the Alabama Green Industry Training Center (AGITC) in Shelby County for $42. Visit or the ADAI website for more course options.
