Commercial Pesticide Applicator Short Course in Spanish Language will help Spanish-speaking participants build a foundation of knowledge about safe and proper handling and use of pesticides. We will reinforce topics covered in the study materials used to prepare applicators to take the Pennsylvania certification exam. New applicators are not required to attend this class before taking the exam, but it may help you prepare.

This course will help you prepare for the following:

  • Core
  • Category 06: Ornamental & Shade Trees
  • Category 07: Lawn & Turf

When reading through the course specifics, pay special attention to the information on ordering the correct materials. Category 06 and Category 07 have transitioned to closed book exams and hence they have new manuals, so it is important that you purchase and bring the correct materials to the course.
