These review classes are intended to help prepare participants for the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD) pesticide applicator certification exams. They are optional review sessions and you are not required to take this class in order to take the MDARD exam. Those attending the review session will receive MDARD recertification credits (four RUP credits for a 4-hour class and eight RUP credits for an 8-hour class). This is also a MAEAP phase 1 event that can be used towards your farm’s verification.

The review session will cover multiple chapters of the pesticide core manual. Emphasize will be to prepare participants for the test using multiple choice practice questions on an interactive basis.

The regular MDARD certification exam will be held at multiple locations around the state. Check the MDARD Online Pesticide Exam Scheduling website for more information about exams dates. If you plan to take the MDARD exam, be prepared to pay by check (no cash or credit cards) payable to the State of Michigan. The fee for private applicators is $50, and for commercial applicators is $75.

MDARD requires you register for the exam session by scheduling an appointment online or calling 1-800-292-3939. MDARD does not accept walk-ins or late arrivals. Spaces are limited, so schedule your exam as soon as possible. A photo identification is also required.

For registration, call the specific Extension office where you want to attend the review section (listed above) or register online at Pesticide Review Classes.

The registration does not include study manuals. You can download a free copy of the National Applicator Core Training Manual (without private or commercial applicator Michigan addendum), or order the “National Applicator Core Training Manual & Michigan Private Applicator Addendum” (E3007KITP) or “National Applicator Core Training Manual and Michigan Commercial Applicator Addendum” (E3008KITC) through the National Pesticide Safety Education Center Store website.
