This training is an opportunity to earn CEUs in the following categories:

Limited Lawn & Ornamental, Limited Commercial Landscape Maintenance, Ornamental & Turf, Private Ag, or General Standards CORE.

For renewal CEUs only, participants can attend until the lunch break to earn 4 CEUs.

If you need to test for Limited Commercial Landscape Maintenance (LCLM), you must attend all day to earn the 6 CEUs required to take this exam. Exams will be available for LCLM and LLO (Limited Lawn & Ornamental) pesticide licensing.

Instructions for FDACS online payment:

Go to the following site - and choose “Apply for Examination”. This takes you to the FDACS License website. If you have not paid online before, you will need to set up a user login account.

Once you’re logged in, choose structural/residential pest control. Then click on Exam sign up.

Make sure to choose the right license/exam – Limited Government/Private Lawn and Ornamental Pest Control (LLO) or Commercial Landscape Maintenance Personnel (LCLM).

The next step will be time consuming if you have several employees. You can make them do it but if you are paying, it may be best to have whoever can use the pcard enter in their information. Another way to do it would be to have them fill out the personal information with the payment person nearby who can then take over. You will need to enter name, driver's license number, birthday, home address, work address, home phone, work phone, and a pin number (for accessing FDACS site and CEU information later). If you don’t want to set up a login for each employee, you can use your login and just change the email address in the personal information section.

On the next screen, check that all information is correct. It’s important to make sure names and addresses are correct for recordkeeping in the future – submitting CEUs, etc. Name must match legal name on driver’s license.

Check all of the agreement boxes and hit submit. This takes you to a new screen where you can pay with a card.

After paying you will be able to print out a receipt with a voucher number and DTN – digital tracking number. This is how I will know you payed and I will submit the voucher with the tests to FDACS.
