    In order to get an applicator license in the state of IL you must pass a General Standards test and a Turf test. (If you wish to spray trees, bushes, or flower beds you must also pass a Ornamental test. The University of IL has training seminars that you take the tests at. Study information for these tests are available at: www.pesticidesafety.uiuc.edu

    Here is another website: Pesticide Safety Education Program

    You can pickup study materials from your local University of Illinois Extension office...Click here to find one near you.

    They usually offer a 2-day class/test in different areas, or you can just study the materials on your own and then schedule a test date down in springfield.

    Get the training guides and look them over/study them a couple weeks prior to taking the test. Also take the training classes offered and you will pass.
