Or. Admin. R. 603-057-0150 - Alternative Requirements for Competence of Pesticide Applicator or Consultant License Renewal

In lieu of the written re-examination requirements of OAR 603-057-0120(3) or of 603-057-0145(4), an applicant for renewal of either a pesticide applicator's license or a pesticide consultant's license may accumulate at least 40 credits by attending pesticide-instructional sessions, accredited by the Department, during the five-year period preceding the year in which the written re-examination would be required, in accordance with the following:

(1) Not more than 15 credits may be accumulated for recertification purposes by an applicant during any one calendar year.
(2) In the event a pesticide instructional session is desired to be considered for accreditation by an applicant, such applicant shall submit to the Department, or person authorized by the Department, a written request for accreditation not less than 30 days prior to the scheduled session, which written request shall include the agenda and summary of each topic/presentation of the session, the session sponsor, the name and address of the session sponsor, and the time and place of such session. Upon receipt of such written request, the Department, in consultation with Oregon State University, shall evaluate the instructional value of the session and either deny accreditation or assign credits to the entire session or any portion thereof in a range from 1 to 15, assigning no more than one credit for each 50 to 60 minute period of instruction. No such instructional sessions shall be considered for accreditation that is less than two credit hours in length except for computer based trainings as approved by the Department. In the event an instructional session is accredited, the Department shall provide the session instructor or sponsor with attendance certificates to be completed by such instructor or sponsor and returned by the applicants to the Department within 15 days after the session is completed. Under exceptional circumstances, as described in writing by an applicant, a written request for accreditation submitted later than 30 days prior to the scheduled session may be assigned credits in accordance with the provisions of this rule. Falsification of any part of such attendance certificate shall be considered grounds for license revocation proceedings by the Department.
(3) This section shall not apply to persons licensed to use the livestock protection collar in Oregon, in accordance with OAR-603-057-0120(3).
