I just looked into this myself and this is what I think the requirements are.

They prefer you to work under someone that is certified for at least a year. If you do not have that option they will accept a degree in biology, horticulture or some degree of a similar nature.

If you go to this web site:

For Nutrients (Fertilizer)
http://www.mda.state.md.us/geninfo/gen5.htm

For Pesticides
http://www.mda.state.md.us/geninfo/genera10.htm


I hope this helps.

I just faxed some paper work to Rich Martin who is in Md too. If you want email me and i will get it to you. In Md you need either the 1 year exp. under a licensce or these 2 classes, pesticide use and safety and turf management. Upon completeion of these two classes you can than take the test for the state of Md. Email me if you want info.
