Evidence base: The four pesticide applicator training topics designed to teach applicators to acquire knowledge and skills to be an effective applicator and to complete a licensing exam (Oregon example) were completed by 14 applicators, mostly in Spanish. All participants completed the training over a 1-week period and showed excellent learning on the post-tests compared to the pre-test. They indicated that they liked the class and their confidence increased for performing applicator procedures and to take a licensing exam.
