Pesticide Safety Programs: NASDARF Cooperative Agreement (X8-83456201) with US EPA’s Office of Pesticide Programs
NASDA Research Foundation, EPA, state lead agencies and extension educators have developed several training and testing resources for applicator certification. The manuals can be viewed on the web or downloaded for printing. In addition, print-quality files can be requested. If states are modifying their own training manuals, they can request use of these resources to assist their efforts. Regarding item banks for developing or revising exams, requests can be made directly to EPA for these secure files.
All questions regarding the National Pesticide Applicator Certification Core Manual should be directed to:
