    I want to send my key employees to obtain their limited application, FL BMP cert & limited fertilizer application licenses.

    Anybody out there know if they can do this on-line or do I have to wait for it to come around to the PBC extension.

    I am not sure about the Limited but is there not something where you can take the BMP in house - if you become a certified instructor? It seems I remember some of the big L&O companies here helping instruct a couple of the BMP courses last year so they could fullfull credits in house.

    i read that also but I'm not interested in becoming an instructor. I also thought you could take it online. A little more research came up with this;


    Good news eh?

    I'll have to wait for the limited to come around locally.

    Cheers. BTW did you know that Fort Lauderdale is America's 2nd "gayest" city and Orlando is the 5th?

    Key West and South beach didn't even get honorable mention. :laugh:

    The Correct Term is "CEU PROVIDER" not certified Instructor. While there is no actual qualifications to be a CEU Provider, The state doesn't accept just anyone as a Provider. They like to see some kind of actual credentials. Each CEU Course offered by a Provider must be pre approved and must follow a certain guide line. You might notice the Outline used at all CEU course are in fact from the same Temple. Once a CEU Course is approved for a CEU Provider, it can be repeated any number of times for up to one year before it must be renewed.

    BTW I am not currently a CEU Provider, But I have been in the past. I just checked the CEU Provider website and much to my surprise my pass word, is still good.

    I took the BMP on line. Like the LLCM its dirt simple common sense.

    I did the basic "Florida Friendly" course/test online.. I'm pretty sure a 5th grader could pass it without any studying.

    Got one doing the on-line now. The greatest challenge is staying awake as the proctor drones on monotonously.

    So you are saying it has a life like feel? Comparable to SOME of the actual classes.
