Certify with Online Learning

Interested in certifying online?  The Pesticide Vendor Certification Course is offered online:
(Registration closes approximately one week before the course starts to allow assignment of passwords by the University.)

The course takes place over 8 business days.  You need to participate every day, for approximately 2 hours (total time is the same as a 2-day course). You need to be competent in the use of a computer, have a high speed connection and be a self-directed learner.

What Will The Course Be Like?
Each day you will need to login to the course, and be prepared to discuss pesticide topics with your classmates, and complete each day’s learning activities.  Before the class starts, view our resources under the "Learning" tab to:

  • View the presentations.
  • Read the manual chapters.
  • Practice your understanding by completing questions.
  • Watch the videos.

You need to prepare for class by learning the information in each chapter.  The more you learn before you begin the course, the easier it will be for you to participate and complete the learning activities.

You are evaluated on each day’s learning activities which includes participation marks for discussions with your classmates and the instructor.  You must submit each day’s learning activities before 12 noon of the next day.  The activities contribute to your overall certification grade for a possible total grade of 100%.  You need a grade of 75% or greater to successfully complete the course for certification.  The course is open to you for two weeks after the last day so you can view your grades.

It is your responsibility to have access to the technology for accessing the course.  We expect students to be competent in the use of a computer for e-mail and searching the internet.  The course works best when you use Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox browsers.
