Dear Howard:

I'm not sure exactly what materials you want. If you are looking to find out how to be a certified pesticide applicator, here is a link to our general certification brochure.
http://pubs.cas.psu.edu/FreePubs/pdfs/uo205.pdf

This brochure will explain the differences between private, commercial, and public applicators and what you need to do to become an applicator. Also included is information on how you need to maintain your certification. Contact information for the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture is provided.

Here is a web page on how to order study materials for the certification examinations: http://extension.psu.edu/pests/pesticide-education/applicators/certification/packets

To find examination dates and location, you will need to visit the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture website at:

I hope this information is helpful to you. However, if you have additional questions, you can email me back at sgripp@psu.edu.
