This approximately 1 hour course is presented in two modules that provide a review of CORE manual content required for Vermont pesticide applicator certification. Each module is accompanied by a quiz that must be completed to receive credit. The modules may be viewed at your own pace. Once enrolled, you will have one year to complete the review. 

  • This course is for anyone wishing to retain a Vermont pesticide applicator license: nursery employees, landscapers, farmers, agricultural employers (WPS compliance), garden center employees, pest control operators, government or municipal employees, university employees, etc.
  • Upon completion, a certificate will be granted that must be printed and mailed to the Vermont Agency of Agriculture (or your local state certifying agency) to receive one (1) recertification credit.
  • This course does not provide a review of entire CORE manual content. Please see related Vermont Pesticide Safety Education course offerings for review of other content, including materials required to take the Vermont pesticide applicator certification CORE exam.
