Registration:  Preregistration and a $30 fee are required to attend a training session. Walk-ins will neither be allowed nor the certification exam be administered to individuals who have not preregistered. Preregistration to attend a training session is valid only if you already have your copy of the current training manual with intact Training Registration Form or you order your manual at the same time you preregister.

When to Preregister:  To preregister for a training session ($30 fee) and to receive your training manual ($47 fee), please do so before the deadline date listed for your training session (see specific training session). If your preregistration arrives after the deadline, we may still be able to preregister you but only if: 1) space is available at the site and, 2) we are able to guarantee delivery of your manual in advance of your session.

How to Preregister: You have two options:
1) Go online at the PAT Store and pay by credit card. Paying by credit card is available ONLY online; we CANNOT accept credit card orders over the phone due to security reasons.

Training Sessions & Fees:

  • Training is designed for initial certification; however, recertifying applicators may also find it useful.
  • Training sessions DO NOT replace the need to read, study, or learn the information in the training manual.  Training sessions act as a review before the test.
  • Sessions begin at 8:15 a.m. and conclude around 2 p.m. (some sessions end earlier some later)
  • The certification exam is given immediately after the training session has completed.
  • The $30 training session fee is paid for each session you preregister to attend.
  • The training session fee is nonrefundable; however, if you cannot attend but you contact our office at least one day before the session is held, the fee is either transferable to another person you name and / or held credit to attend a future session.
