I just got off the phone with our state department inquiring about a license. The requirements for a certified operator are 4 months of field experience or 2 college credits and a month of experience. I have neither... business degree. They told me I could put down my experience to qualify me? I don't have any experience applying pesticides mostly mowing and fert. You don't need a license to do that here. I don't get it you need experience but how am I to get experience when I don't work for anyone. According to them though they will qualify me based on my experience... What do you guys think? I don't understand how I qualify if I don't have experience Got to love government!!
