I don't know how everything is structured in virginia but in Texas there are two different types of licensing. One is an ag license which deals with outdoors only ie fire ant control weed control products that require a license and perimeter sprays. the other license is a structural license that deals with inside the home res and com properties. The trick that I found was I had to get my ag business license for a year. After a year of operating outside the state allowed me to take my CA business license exam. Some states have it structured that way so a business owner doesn't have to go work for another company, which to me seems counter productive for business owners. I hope this helps

You need to fill out the application A and tell all the chemicals you have been spraying and expierience that you have, and I would assume you would check box 2 and 3 on the application for expierence and training, and fill out what catagory you want, and they should send a letter of approval to take the test.
