I'm thinking about winging it on the test..... is it hard. What does it consist of? What can I look up on my phone to study for it

Ohio's test: "read the label" and you'll probably pass.

Here Extension provides study materials that don't take much time to go through.

In Florida, we have to pass two tests - a core pesticide cert, and one or more of several specific certs. I test for natural areas and weed management, but there are others like l and o, forestry, aquatic, etc. The core is easy but the others are moderately to very hard. Look into your state specific.

I lectured for the Southern Chapter ISA a few years ago on a topic regarding Pest Control Licensing and spoke with Pesticide Division Personnel in all the states encompassed by that chapter as I prepared my presentation. My take away from my conversations with them, was that it's a lot harder to get certified as a PCO in Florida than the other nearby states. The best information resource will probably be your local extension agent.

Ohio tests are cake. Core is most difficult, categories not so much. The greenhouse one was the most difficult I've taken and I think I was up to 6 categories at one point.
