The CRC is providing this information to our members and industry allies to assist with your license/certificate renewals. The Department of Pesticide Regulation has not modified the renewal deadlines for license/certificate holders required to renew by December 31, 2020. It is recommended you submit your renewal packet by November 1 to receive your license/certificate by January 1. The licenses/certificates holders renewing every two years such as the pest control adviser split the alphabet using the last names starting with A to L in 2020. The prohibition of in person events has increased the availability of online continuing education courses approved for all license/certificate types related to the rice industry. Several more courses will become available after the first of the year. In the interim, the CRC has compiled the following information to help you renew and maintain your license/certificate. For more information, contact CRC Industry Affairs Manager Roberta Firoved at firstname.lastname@example.org or (916) 206-5039.
