Technician Training information

This 6 hour exam prep course is required for apprentices to qualify to take the technician exam.  

Prior to the Technician Exam, apprentices should have already completed:

The 6 hour prep class is a review of what they should have already learned in the previous 40, 20, 8 hrs.

For already licensed Technicians, they must have 8 hours of training per year. This course will count 6 hours TOWARDS the 8 hours. Technicians will need an additional 2 hours of on-the-job within the same year.

*This Technician Training course meets the SPCS requirements for apprentices and non-commercial applicators. There will NOT be an exam following the technician training class. This is just one of many requirements** in preparing for the exam. Please visit www.texasagriculture.gov for more information and a list of the full requirements you will need before taking your exam. The General Study guide is included in the registration fee. 

**Please note: you will also need up-to-date category specific study manuals (Pest, Termite, L&O, etc.) to pass the exam. These manuals are available through the AgriLife Extension service by calling 979-845-1099. These are not available for purchase through TPCA.
