Pesticide applicator license exam to be offered June 27

| April 17, 2017

COSHOCTON – The Ohio Department of Agriculture Pesticide and Fertilizer Regulation Section will administer exams for Pesticide Applicator Licensing on Tuesday, June 27 at 1 p.m. in Room B100 of the Coshocton County Services Building. Exams will be offered for both private and commercial applicator licensing. There is no fee for the testing. Registration must be completed online by visiting pested.osu.edu. Go to private applicator or commercial applicator and click on “testing.”

A private applicator applies restricted-use pesticides on his/her own land, or rented land, and produces an agricultural commodity. A commercial applicator applies pesticides for a business, on land owned by someone else, and usually for hire. Commercial applicators may also work for a government agency like a township, city, school district, park district, etc., or apply to publicly-accessible sites.

A list of suggested study materials can also be found at pested.osu.edu. Some materials are available online at no charge and some materials can be purchased at the OSU Extension Office or online. An exam prep class will be offered for new Private Applicators on Monday, June 12 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Coshocton County Extension Office. There is no charge for the class, but please RSVP to the Extension Office at 740-622-2265.
