Government Pesticide License Testing

All PAT Coordinators are required to obtain a government pesticide license. While the 2021 PAT Core training will help you understand your role as a PAT Coordinator and many pesticide topics it is not intended as a comprehensive training for the government pesticide licensing test. Please obtain study materials from your local Montana Department of Agriculture District Officer and make arrangements for testing with them within six months of employment.
