In addition to the sites listed in the April 6 ICM newsletter (page 33), certification exams also are available to commercial applicators at three community colleges. Appointments are necessary and there will be a $10 testing fee for all the exams an individual wants to take in a single session, in addition to any certification fees. Exam scores should be available within 24 hours. These sites are testing-only sites. All other licensing functions and payment of fees need to be handled through the Pesticide Bureau, Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship. All sites are closed during holidays.
