Down here you must have at least 3 years in the lawn/lanscaping business to even take the test to get certified. I only have a little over 2 so I have to wait a while longer. I guess I can't understand the 3 years part. I have no problem being tested and want to do the right thing but can't. I was told by someone all you have to do is get a company to write a notorized letter and say you worked for them to make up the difference in time needed. No Way. If I can't do it the LEGAL way then I will bite the bullet and wait. I'm sure there are a lot of people out there spraying, that shouldn't be.

You can take the test in PA then transfer to FLA ASAP.
If you have a certification from PA you can get in the game right now.

Might be able to do the same thing with some states closer to you.

In Florida, if you have no degree, you need 3 years experience(ID card holder) under a certified operator with to qualify for the test. Or 1 year experience with a degree in a related field such as botany if your going to take the L&O exam. If you come from out of state with a certification you need 1 year experience under a certified operator to qualify for the test. When you are qualified with the experience study hard the failure rate is presently 85-90%. Very hard. Good Luck
