Test Prep

Our QAC/QAL Test Preparation Courses are designed to help you increase your knowledge and prepare for the Qualified Applicators Certification/Licensing (QAC/QAL) exam.

Early registration is $225 per person. Late registration begins five days prior to the course date and is $260 per person.

Mailed-in payments must be postmarked more than 7 days in advance of the Test Prep in order to avoid late fees. We do not currently offer refunds. If you would like to unregister and receive credit toward a future Test Prep, please call us at 831-442-3536 or email us. Registrations not cancelled via phone or email prior to 3:30 pm the day before the event will result in a $30 fee deducted from the amount paid.

Morning coffee and lunch are included in your registration fee.

Course materials provided:

  • Preparation course manual
  • Landscape, right-of-way, plant ag, and residential categories will be covered in addition to laws and regulations
  • California Department of Pesticide Regulation laws and regulations study guide

When you attend a PAPA Test Prep, you will receive a postcard that is valid for one free year of membership with PAPA, if you pass the DPR licensing exam. After passing the DPR exam and receiving a license number, fill out the postcard and mail it back to PAPA for your free membership!

How to take the QAL/QAC exam:

You will need to contact DPR's Licensing Department at 916-445-4038 to obtain the application to take the test. You must file your application with DPR 30 days prior to the testing date. More information is available on DPR's website, www.cdpr.ca.gov.
