Down here you must have at least 3 years in the lawn/lanscaping business to even take the test to get certified. I only have a little over 2 so I have to wait a while longer. I guess I can't understand the 3 years part. I have no problem being tested and want to do the right thing but can't. I was told by someone all you have to do is get a company to write a notorized letter and say you worked for them to make up the difference in time needed. No Way. If I can't do it the LEGAL way then I will bite the bullet and wait. I'm sure there are a lot of people out there spraying, that shouldn't be.
