    Hi Grasskeeper & Welcome,

    You need to speak with Vinny Palmer with the DEC. He's your guy on Long Island.

    Call my guy, Tom Dichillo at 845-256-3123 or 845-256-3097 and ask Tom for Vinny's number.

    You'll need to take the standard 30 hour course that's structured by & based on the Cornell Pesticide Core Training Manual & the corresponding Category 3A publication. At the end of an approved 30 hour course, you & the others will be given the test.

    We offer such courses at various times of the year. Call Mark at our Riverhead location for a list of where & when at 631-369-1784.

    Good Luck,
