A buddy called me this morning with his results of the L & O test. He was afraid he had failed when I talked to him right after he took it, 2 weeks ago. He got it by the skin of his teeth with a 78 but he is still a CPO now. Back when the test scores were divided into Law and Horticulture and you needed to pass both parts, My Go to guy got a 98 on the Hort and a 74 on the law and failed. He never retook the test but consults for many Pest control companies and is well respected. He didn't study for the test.

I am on the Gulf Coast South West across the state from Vero Beach.

I am full book but only activate L&O and GHP. I also have Aquatic, Road and Right away, Row crop, Grove, Animal etc etc. The Bureau of Compliance certs are very easy to get and don't cost to take the test at your local Extension service. I am semi retired and a one man band. I have given up my Irrigation and Commercial Landscape Contractor License. I don't even cut my own grass.

My local extension office has told me that if he can get 3 or more he might get someone out to monitor the test. I believe the study materials are available at the local extension office. If not enough people have interest in the tests then you have to go to the University of North Carolina to test. Study hard and you should be good to go. I went there years ago and got certified in pest control and passed the core and pest control first try. I am interested in doing the t and o so will be trying again. good luck

Anybody know how the economy is affecting Certified Operator tests attendance, in Florida? I cannot believe what I heard last night: 50% to 75% down? I asked one guy that took the Lawn and Ornamental test in March; He got there 45 minutes late, and they had just finished calling names. Attendance has been high for a long time no? I always hear 200 to 300 people. Is this right? . . . . . . Somebody is pulling my leg.
