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.
