Preparation for Exams
During the Short Course, presentations will review a great deal of the material that will be covered on the General Standards (CORE), Aquatic, Natural Areas, and Right-of-Way category certification exams. In addition, it is highly recommended that you review the appropriate Pesticide Application Training Manual for the categories in which you will be testing.
Questions for the pesticide certification exams are derived from training manuals available from the UF/IFAS Extension Bookstore. You may order these manuals at ANY time through the Bookstore’s website or by calling (352) 392-1764.
Note: If you need to place a tax exempt order, contact the IFAS bookstore at 800-226-1764 or email@example.com BEFORE submitting your order so they can update your account to tax exempt status.
Select publications will also be available for purchase at the Short Course, however these manuals are approximately 100 pages long. To ensure that you have adequate time to read these materials and prepare for the exams, you are encouraged to purchase manuals prior to the Short Course.
