Pesticide Training and Testing Update

In-person pesticide training sessions will not be offered this season in Illinois.  Training will only be available either through online courses or by purchasing self-study publications.  As far as pesticide testing, both in-person and online testing options will be available.  Online testing will be available through an exam proctoring service.  Registration for online testing can be found here.  IDOA is working hard on creating as many in-person testing sessions as possible.  The current list of in-person testing locations and dates can be found here.  More locations and dates will be added, so make sure to periodically check the IDOA page if you are interested in taking the exam in-person.
Lastly, we plan to offer in-person general standards training at the IFCA Convention in Peoria, IL January 19th, 2022.  As of now, this is the only in-person training being provided through the upcoming spring season.  We will provide more information on the training, including registration, as we grow closer to convention.
