    In NY, you don't need to be certified for ferts or lime... but any chemicals, yes... like pre-emergent crabgrass apps. I got certified this year... and it started by me clicking on the link 1MajorTom posted above.

    Be sure to find a GOOD 30 hour course to take. In NY, the fail rate on the test is about 50%. My local LCO association has an 85% pass rate for those who take THEIR course.
