The Logan County date for Private Pesticide Applicator Training and Testing will be Tuesday, December 2, 2008. The session will be held at the Lincoln Recreation Center. Training will begin at 8:30 a.m., and testing should be concluded by 12:30 a.m. Once again, by statewide policy, there will be a $30 fee to attend the training. This is in addition to the license fee required by the Illinois Department of Agriculture. If you are interested in taking the exam only, and not attending the training session, please contact the office for the arrival time and to register separately. The other option is to take the exam by appointment in Springfield.
This session will allow training and testing for private applicators only. Attendees who successfully pass the exam would be allowed to purchase and apply restricted use products on ground they own or operate. Restricted use products include atrazine and most rootworm insecticides.
Pre-registration is required. Payment may be made at the door. Registration is limited. Online registration is also available from the home page for the Logan County site.
