Are you guys talking about the QAL and QAC? These are required for pesticide application, they do not address fertilizers without pesticides.

http://www.cdpr.ca.gov/docs/license/licreq_qac.pdf
You must possess a valid Qualified Applicator Certificate (QAC) if you do any of the following:

• Apply or supervise the application of federally restricted use pesticides or state restricted materials for any purpose or on any property other than that provided by the definition of private applicator1 (Title 3 of California Code of Regulations [3 CCR], Code section
6000).
• If you own a business of maintenance gardening, and perform pest control that is incidental to such a business. If this is the case, you must possess the Maintenance Gardener Category (Q) or the Landscape Maintenance Pest Control Category (B) on your certificate and, in addition, obtain a Maintenance Gardener Pest Control Business License.

You must possess a valid Qualified Applicator License (QAL) if you do any of the following:

• Apply or supervise the application of federally restricted use pesticides or state restricted materials for any purpose or on any property other than that provided by the definition of private applicator1 (Title 3 of California Code of Regulations [3 CCR], Code section 6000)

• Supervise the pesticide applications made by a licensed pest control business and are responsible for its safe and legal operation (Food and Agricultural Code [FAC] sections 11701-11709)


If you look through the restricted use database you will find that the only fertilizers listed (both CA and Federal) are those that contain pesticides.

Some of you CA guys might find this an interesting read.
