    Took the commercial app. license last wed. It’s a tough test, 150 questions. The hardest part is that you have 4 choices and you have to choose all the correct answers. I don’t think I did too well but I want to see how the test was set up and questions and material to study.

    I'm glad to see that the tests are hard for folks. That way every person who walks in the door, doesnt walk out with a license in hand. There are alot of guys that have a license that should not. All it takes is some serous studying of your core manuals for your state.

    I'll second that for florida. it took me twice to pass the floirda test L/O. I took the Household pest test 3 times before I gave up. I took it while I worked at Disney they were paying so I did not mind trying...

    I stopped renwing my florida Lic last year...I figured the Increasing fees and having to sit infront of a computer for the CEU's was getting old...

    Wasn't the florida test 250 Multiple choice and about 100 open answer (ID and labels) 1/2 of tests. gotta have 75 or better and fail one section fail them all If I remember correctly. that was 10 years ago though....

    Barriers of entry to the market are a plus in my eyes too. Anyone can mow a lawn and rake leaves or put dirt in a wheelbarrow. That is on reason why I want the certification because it is another degree of separation from the mower man persona. And I will soon have a 4-year degree in business management.

    The connecticut arborist test also involves a tree i.d..You have to i.d. 20 tree out of a list of 40 if you pass that you take the oral exam.Took one time for me but it was very nerve racking.o&t is a written and then an oral exam.So study,study,study.
