I usually only go the the commercial section, but I will be visiting this section a lot more. Passed my test for core exam and category 3b today. I was a nervous wreck. Sending off for my license tomorrow. I will have a ton of questions for you guys.....

Congrats.

Its a waiting game here in Ontario.

Pass the Core and Landscaping exam $150. Wait 2 weeks for results.

Apply to the Ministry of Environment with Exam Results $90 for 5 years. Wait 2 weeks for Pesticide Licence.

Obtain General Liability Insurance and then apply for an Operators Licence with proof of your Pesticide Licence $200. Guess What, Wait 2-3 weeks for you Operators Licence to arrive.

7 weeks of waiting.

Waiting for the Core and Landscape results is a nail biter.

Some of the insurance companys say they want 1-3 years experience before giving out insurance.

Got a quote for $1600 Pesticide/Snow/Landscape $1Million general Liability. They want 1year experience.

Got a quote for $1200 Pesticide Apps and Landscape general Liability $1Million only. No experience but they want $2500 extra to cover for Snow Plow Liability. This includes $25,000 in Equipment.

Not consistent at all in my opinion.

Hope the info helps
