    LGG,
    Since you're in my back yard I'll get you started. I can't find anywhere in my info (looked quickly) about an age requirement, although I would believe it is 18. Each state has its own pesticide regulations as well as federal regulations. Getting licensed is not difficult if you can read & comprehend well. Check out this link that covers your questions & more, and then if you have any more unanswered questions let us know. Good luck.

    Thanks alot BRL. As for the age thing, I'm not 18 yet, I still have a little over a year but I knew a kid who is 18, he worked at a golf course and had his lisense but I'm not sure if he got it before he turned 18 or not. Anyway if it is 18 I guess I could still get the material to study and as soon as I turn 18 I'll get my license. THANKS
