Prepare for the MDARD Core Pesticide Applicators Certification exam with this review session. The morning reviews cover the National Pesticide Applicators Certification Core Manual and the Michigan addendum. Reviews are followed by lunch and the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development exams are given that afternoon.

Four Recertification/RUP credits in either Private or Commercial Core are also available for those attending the review session that are already certified and seeking renewal by seminar credits.

We recommend participants read and study the Core Manual E3007 (Private) or E3008 (Commercial Second Edition 2014) before attending the review. Manuals may be ordered from Click on “MSU Extension Bookstore”, then click on “Pesticide Applicator Training,” choose your manuals and follow directions for ordering or call 1-800-709-9195 to order manuals by phone (credit cards accepted).
