The following training manuals provide information to Indiana pesticide applicators who are interested in becoming licensed to apply pesticides as a for-hire service to their client’s property or who will be applying restricted-use pesticides to their employer’s property or on their farm.

Each manual is designed to help prepare the reader for the corresponding state certification exam. Manuals can serve as self-preparation for applicators who elect to take examinations on their own, and they are also an important component of classroom instruction. There is no need to order training manuals for applicators who choose in-person training or elearning courses. Training manuals are included as part of the registration fee. Note: Private applicators will need the Core Training Manual.
