About this Program

Certificates must contain at least nine credits of coursework that are unique to that program out of all other certificates and minors.

The pest control technology certificate is awarded upon completion of specific coursework in entomology and pest management that satisfies the academic requirements of Florida state statute 482, which requires 24 semester credits plus one year of employment to qualify to take the Florida Pest Control Operator's license examination.

There are no prerequisite courses, but students are advised to remember the requirement of a year's employment to qualify to take the licensing exam.
