The Department is pleased to announce that it will begin holding pesticide exams during the week of June 15th. The exams will be given in small numbers within the exam applicants vehicle. Exams will be scheduled in the order of cancellation with a focus on the Commercial Applicators License (Core) exam for the first few exams. The applicants will be contacted with the rescheduled date via email. The email will include a set of detailed instructions. If an individual is not able to make the rescheduled date but would still like to take the exam, they will be placed at the end of the list for rescheduling. It is imperative that if an individual has opted to no longer take the test they notify the Department immediately. Due to the small size of the exams every spot counts towards getting through the backlog as quickly as possible. Once all or most of the cancelled exams have been given, the Department will open up the exam dates to allow for new exams to be offered. I would like to note that the Department has put out a request for bids relative to an online exam proctoring service for a long term solution. We will keep you posted as that option develops.
