All 2020 in-person Test Prep courses have been cancelled. Formerly registered attendees of the cancelled events have been emailed with information about the cancellation. Click here for answers to your PAPA-related COVID-19 questions.
PAPA's Test Preparation courses are not California Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR) exams. Please see the bottom of this page for information on how to register for a DPR exam.
Please do not register for a Test Prep and a seminar that are both occurring on the same day. You will not be able to attend both, and likely only need to take one or the other. If you plan on taking the DPR QAC/QAL exam, the Test Prep alone will suffice. If you only need continuing education, a seminar is the more appropriate choice.
Our QAC/QAL Test Preparation courses are intended to help you prepare for taking the DPR Qualified Applicators Certificate/License (QAC/QAL) exam. PAPA does not offer Test Preparation courses for any other certification or license type, nor do we proctor the actual exam.
For the best chance at success, we recommend allowing sufficient time (at least two weeks) between taking the Test Prep course and taking DPR’s exam in order to study all of the materials adequately. The chances of passing depend greatly on the time and effort dedicated to learning the materials we provide, thus PAPA cannot guarantee that a Test Prep attendee will pass the DPR exam.
Included in your Test Prep registration:
- Morning coffee and lunch (not available for Test Prep webinars)
- 7 hours of education from PAPA’s Test Prep instructor
- Preparation course manual (includes study materials on the following categories): Laws and Regulations, Residential (Category A), Landscape (Category B), Right-of-Way (Category C), and Plant Ag (Category D)
- Postcard valid for one free year of membership with PAPA, if you pass the DPR licensing exam (once you receive your certificate/license number, fill out the postcard and mail it back to us to receive your free membership)
