Important Pesticide Exam Information

Read This First!

You must contact the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation regional office offering the exam to pre-register. "Walk-Ins" are NOT allowed! When you pre-register, you will need to provide proof of eligibility to sit for the exam. Please view the examination procedures for prospective candidates for pesticide applicator/technician certification exams (PDF) (25 KB). You can also obtain information about exam fees, location and time of the exam, and any special requirements for taking the exam. This is also a good time to ask any questions you may have about the certification process.
