PSEP's Online Training Courses are constructed to closely mirror the format of our traditional in-person training clinics. They are specifically designed to establish and/or reinforce competencies required of Illinois Pesticide Applicators. As with our in-person training clinics, these courses can prove valuable tools in preparation for their respective licensure exams administered by The Illinois Department of Agriculture.

Note that the following courses differ in format from what is shown here: Private Applicator, Demonstration & Research, Grain Facility, Plant Management and Vegetable Crops.

Structured, yet self-paced...

Access to each course is available for a 30 day window upon purchase. While the course provides a linear flow of content which builds upon itself, you are free to navigate the course in any order you wish. Your progress will be automatically saved so that you can quickly pick up where you left off. You may review the course content as many times as you'd like during your access window.

A variety of voices to keep you engaged...

Courses are broken down into bite-sized training modules which help encapsulate specific topics and concepts. You'll be greeted by different subject matter experts as you work your way through the modules, and if you come up with any questions about the content, you'll know exactly who to contact.

A balance of active and passive learning...

Content is delivered in short videos and immediately followed with knowledge check questions. While entirely optional, these questions will help you to determine your exam readiness, and any concepts or topics you may want to reinforce in your exam preparation.
