Pesticide applicators planning to take the Pennsylvania certification exam can benefit by attending the “Pesticide Applicator Short Course,” hosted by Penn State Extension. This online webinar series will help attendees build a foundation of knowledge about safe and proper handling and use of pesticides while preparing for the PDA applicator exams. New applicators are not required to attend this class before taking the exam, but it may help them prepare.

Scheduled to begin on Aug. 3, 2020, from 9 a.m. to noon, the online course will continue throughout August and will conclude Aug. 26, 2020. Categories covered will include core, categories 06, 07, 23 and 10. While face-to-face meetings for Penn State Extension have been suspended, this online webinar series supports those who wish to take the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture’s pesticide applicator exam.

Certification exam study materials are not included in the registration fee. All participants are responsible for bringing their own core and category certification examination training materials to the class. Instructions for ordering study materials can be found on the registration website.
