What is a Certified Pest Control Operator?


A certified operator is an individual who has passed an examination administered by FDACS in any of four certification categories. The categories that a person can be certified in are:

- General Household and Rodent Control

- Lawn and Ornamental Pest Control

- Termite and Other Wood-Destroying Organisms Control

- Fumigation


A person can be certified in just one or all four categories.


A company's pest control operations are the responsibility of the certified operator in charge and the business operations are limited to the category (or categories) possessed by the certified operator (or operators) in charge at the business location.
