Private Applicator Testing

The previous study guide available for purchase through the UCIPM program is in the middle of being revised due to recent legislation changes in January 2017. This previous manual is still available for growers to study for the private applicator exam, but it’s important to note that several of the pages have outdated information. If you will be taking the private applicator exam soon or would like to be updated about the changes, please click on the link below titled “Private Applicator Manual Updates – Jan 2017”.

Continuing Education Hours by Video

Certified Private Applicators and Qualified Applicators can obtain the required continuing education hours any time during the year by viewing videos and answering a quiz at hour office.

Call one of our offices to arrange a time to view videos and complete the worksheets. (Please give us at least 3 days notice.)
