Maintain My Certification

To retain their certification, ACEs must renew annually with ESA. For those who are ESA members, the process is simply a matter of ensuring that the appropriate fees are included with the standard membership renewal, and that a photocopy of the pesticide applicator's license is submitted to the Certification Coordinator.

For all others, the renewal process includes the requisite fees, a RENEWAL FORM and submitting your photocopied pesticide applicator's license (do not submit your original license).
