Pennsylvania Pesticide Applicator Certification Core Manual
The development of this manual was supported by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Office of Pesticide Programs' cooperative agreement with the National Association of State Departments of Agriculture Research Foundation. By learning how to handle pesticides correctly, applicators will be able to protect themselves, others, and the environment from pesticide misuse. This manual is sold separately or as part of two study material packets (PEP-00C or PEP-00P) for pesticide applicators preparing to take the Pennsylvania Pesticide Applicator Certification Core Exam or Private Applicator Exam. By learning how to handle pesticides correctly, applicators will be able to protect themselves, others, and the environment from pesticide misuse.
