Commercial pesticide applicators in Wisconsin can now schedule their certification exams online.
Commercial pesticide applicators must take a certification exam every five years. Commercial applicators in all categories can go to http://pestexam.datcp.wi.gov/ to register to take the exams. They may also continue to schedule exams by calling the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection at 608-224-4548, 7:45 a.m.-4:30 p.m. weekdays.
The online registration site also provides information about how to buy a training manual, what happens when you arrive to take your exam, and directions to exam locations, along with answers to frequent questions.
Private applicators must still schedule their exams with their county extension agents.
