Course: Pesticide Training & Testing
Pesticide Training and Testing is for Categories 3, 5 & 6. To prepare workers to take the certification exam, we provide five hours of instruction, and at the completion of the training, the Department of Agriculture administers the exam. We do not provide special certification testing for Category 18. Pesticide certification and license questions should be directed to the Division of Environmental Services, Kentucky Department of Agriculture at 502-573-0272.
Payment is required in advance, except employees of the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.
