Just got of the phone with the Missouri Dept of Ag - Pesticide office. Took the Core, 3 (Orn & Turf) and 6 (Right of way) tests last Thursday. Prior to the testing, they told us to wait 2-3 weeks for results, and -do not call the office-. While turning in my tests, I asked if it would pose a problem if I had multiple tests / results. They seemed baffled, so I explained: I told them I need to make -sure- I am certified prior to March, and I didn't want to risk waiting 2-3 weeks, only to find I hadn't passed. If it turned out that way, I'd possibly have only 1 chance to pass prior to the work season. They are testing in MO for the next 4 weeks or so, in different areas of the state. As such, I explained that I was planning to drive to each site to take the tests. One of the instructors took me aside, and said "don't mention this to anyone else, but give me or xxx a call next Tuesday or Wednesday. We can tell you if you passed." Very generous offer, so I thanked him, and planned on taking him up on it. (They told me to call on Tues / Weds...the next testing session is on Thursday, 4 hours away. Cutting it thin...) Turns out, I passed all -3- exams, and did very well to boot. SCORE! Now to get some insurance rounded up, and talk to a couple CPAs / Attnys on the LLC vs S Corp issue. Maybe now I'll just hit one of the other testing sessions, to take the Aquatic exam. FWIW, I'll be doing commercial bare-ground apps. I don't plan on doing any residential at this time, nor any landscaping services. Just killin' weeds.
