A survey was administered in 2002 to determine if the University of Missouri Extension's educational program for pesticide applicators provided an advantage for those attempting the state certification exam for the first time. The survey compares the success rate of applicators who attend the program to those who elect to only self-study. Following the program, the Missouri Department of Agriculture conducted the survey prior to administering certification exams. The survey demonstrates such a program provides benefit and is a relatively simple method for Extension professionals to show accountability for such an effort.
