In addition, it is highly recommended that you review the appropriate Pesticide Application Training Manual for the categories you will be testing in.

Questions for the pesticide certification exams are derived from training manuals available from the University of Florida, IFAS Bookstore. You may order these manuals at ANY time through the bookstore’s website or by calling (800) 226-1764.
