Illinois Pesticide Applicator Training, Testing Available 24/7 Online

University of Illinois Extension’s Pesticide Safety Education Program (PSEP) has collaborated with the Illinois Department of Agriculture to offer online training courses and online certification exams to Illinois Pesticide applicators and operators. All training courses and exams are available now through at least July 2021.
“Our commercial training courses each provide several hours of instructional content mixed with exam-prep questions,” says Matt Gill, Illinois Extension specialist. All courses are entirely self-paced and can be completed over a 30-day window following purchase. Some even include the opportunity for obtaining continuing education credits.
Feedback on the new online courses has been overwhelmingly positive. “Folks seem to particularly appreciate the ability to review content more than once, allowing them to strengthen any knowledge areas they may be struggling with,” says Maria Turner, Illinois Extension specialist. For a full list of available courses and pricing see the PSEP Training and Testing page.
For those who prefer or require an alternative to online training, PSEP continues to offer fill-in-the-blank style workbooks for most categories of licensure which guide self-study alongside the printed manuals. For availability and ordering instructions, see the PSEP Study Materials page.
