    I have the license; it is a lot of information to learn, and much of it isn't really necessary to actually perform the work. I don't remember 100% exactly what was on the test, but I do remember that there was diagram where you needed to know pipe sizing (pressure charts, etc.)

    The Rainbird design manual has most of the information you'll need to know for the test...

    found my mini ex guys , should be taking delivery of it this week or next week they still have to service it and clean it up for me , its an 2006 hyundai robex28 w/ a 18" bucket and a mechanical thumb only has 249 original hours , the guy that had it did exactly the same kinda work I am doing and business went bad and the bank repo'd it and my guys over at state equipment called me up , I am getting it for the pay-off amount and its worth well over 28,000 retail right now w/ the hours on it and condition its in , and when I say its in good condition , its like new super tight no slack anywhere ... only downfall is it has a cab but came w/out a/c , but I will definitely be adding it later on down the line , but when you open the doors and lift all the windows its not that bad , but the heater and radio in the winter will be nice ... :dancing: , I'll post some pictures if and when I seal the deal ...

    Hey, I cut grass in Lafayette and live in New Iberia.

    You need to go to your county agent to take the test. I think the test is "Private Pesticide Applicator License"
