Planning on becoming a Certified Pest Control Operator (CO) in Florida?

You can now take the Florida state exam here at Pest Management University.  Friday afternoon immediately following any of the Master’s level courses, the Florida Department of Agriculture (FDACS) will come in and offer a special session of the state certified operator exam to those that qualify.  We cover all the key points at Pest Management University that the state of Florida bases their certified operator exam on.  PMU students have a 99% pass rate on the state exam.  There are no additional fees charged by us at PMU.  You only pay the FDACS exam fee.

To qualify to take the exam at PMU, you must:

  • Take the Foundations and Masters course
  • Meet the state requirements (3 years of experience and completed 45 jobs)
  • Apply and be pre-approved by FDACS to take your state exam (you must still pay the FDACS exam fee)
  • Contact us if you have questions
