    I took a class from Green Industry Consulting back in the beginning of this year. The class cost $125.00. To get 8 CEU Credits to obtain the Limited Pesticide License. I had to show three years records of working in the lawn industry and then paid the state $150.00 to take the test. The class was great and very informative. There are a few others that do the classes to obtain it, Bill Phagan is the one that came to my area. It is money well spent you do not want to get caught without it!

    In regards to the records for 3 years how dose that work? You had to have someone sign that you worked for them for 3 years or proof that you had biz for 3 years. Thanks for the info.

    You either have to show business w-2's or have letters from customers that you have done work for for the past three years. Or be able to show proof that you worked for a lawn or pesticide company for that time.

    I was told by a Scotts lawn guy last friday, that if the customer supplies the little 1 gallon thing of round up and do it for 0 profit then you can apply it.
