Producers who have private applicator licenses may soon receive renewal notices. If you have not received all of your Continuing Education Units, or CEU hours, you may need to attend some of these upcoming programs to make sure you have the required amount of training.

2010 will also mark the first year that individuals who received their licenses after October 2005 will have licenses that will expire on their anniversary date, rather than on Feb. 28.
