First-Time License Pre-license Training

This training is for those preparing for private or professional pesticide license exams.

Check back in January 2022 for the Pesticide Pre-License Training schedule.

Pesticide exams and licenses are issued by the Idaho State Department of Agriculture (ISDA). For licensing information, visit the ISDA website. Online registration with the ISDA is required before an exam session.

Worker Protection Standard (WPS)

The Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Agricultural Worker Protection Standard (WPS) is aimed at reducing the risk of pesticide poisoning and injury among agricultural workers and pesticide handlers.
