CE Courses

Home CE Courses

All of the courses listed on this page will provide continuing education (CE) hours approved by California's Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR) and are not intended to assist in preparing for DPR's exams. If you plan on taking a DPR exam and are interested in registering for a QAC/QAL test preparation course, please see our Test Prep page.

Click on “Agenda” next to a course to see the course's DPR approval status, breakdown of laws/other hours, date, time, location, and outline. Agendas will state that DPR hours are either Requested or Approved. Requested means that we do not yet have final DPR approval of the breakdown of laws/other hours. As soon as approval is received, agendas are updated. Agendas are subject to change and this page is updated regularly to reflect the most current information available. If you need an agenda that is no longer posted, please email us.

Some courses may be accredited for the following additional hours: ISA, GCSAA, CCA, Structural/SPCB, or Vector/MVCAC. If additional accreditation is available, it will be noted on the agenda for that event. If additional accreditation is not noted on the agenda, the event will only provide DPR continuing education hours.

Click here for our Webinar FAQ which has the answers to many common questions about PAPA webinars and details all requirements for webinar attendees to earn CE credit. Please note that webinar capacity is limited as we cannot check IDs, quiz scores, Zoom attendance, etc. for an unlimited number of attendees. 

PAPA also offers six on-demand online courses, in partnership with PestSchool.com. These courses are DPR-approved and are worth 1.0 hour, each. For more information, click here

Please do not register for a CE course and a Test Prep course that are both occurring on the same day. You will not be able to attend both, and likely only need to take one or the other. If you need continuing education to maintain an existing certificate/license, a CE Course is the correct choice. If you plan on taking the DPR QAC/QAL exam, the Test Prep alone will suffice.

Prices are listed in the boxes below. Our Multi-Day Conference pricing can be found by clicking on the Conference's agenda. To qualify for the member rate for CE course registrations, you must be a member for the same year that the course is being held in. (For example, a 2021 membership will not provide a membership discount for a 2022 course.) Not a member yet? Sign up here! 

*New for 2022*: Seminar and webinar registrations are open to members only until 30 days prior to the event date. Registration opens to non-members 30 days prior to the event date.
