In NY, you don't need to be certified for ferts or lime... but any chemicals, yes... like pre-emergent crabgrass apps. I got certified this year... and it started by me clicking on the link 1MajorTom posted above.

Be sure to find a GOOD 30 hour course to take. In NY, the fail rate on the test is about 50%. My local LCO association has an 85% pass rate for those who take THEIR course.

I work for me! I'm a solo LCO. As a certified pesticide technician, I can use any general purpose pesticide, but not RUP's (Restricted Use Pesticides) this year. Next year I will be able to apply RUP's. I referred to my association... the NSLGA... Nassau/Suffolf Landscape Gardener's Assoc. Very helpful to be involved with an association. They give courses (for a fee) and help with state red tape issues, amoung many other things... like keeping me up to date on regs.....
