Canadian Pesticides Applicators' Core Training
This course, along with the special category material, will prepare you for the core portion of various certification exams.
This course teaches the core knowledge required for certification as a pesticide applicator in Canada. It is also a valuable resource for anybody applying pesticides. The course introduces the practices of Integrated Pest Management and the foundational knowledge to prevent and control pests while having the least impact on the environment.
This online course has been developed by Open School BC for the Ministry of Environment and is based on the 2011 edition of the Canadian Pesticide Education Program’s Applicator Core Manual (the Applicator Core Manual required to take the certification exam is purchased separately).
The course allows 8 weeks to complete the approximately 10 hours of online material. Please note that additional Applicator Core Manual readings are required in addition to the online activities.
It is important to note that while learners will receive a printable statement of completion for Applicators’ Core Training, completion of this course does not certify pesticides applicators. This course prepares candidates on a significant number of outcomes that will be tested on the provincial certification exam. Candidates also need to study training material specific to they type of work the will be doing.
