Updates from Alberta Environment
New for AB Reciprocity - as of September 1, 2014 to obtain an Alberta certification, based on your home province certification, you will be required to write at minimum the Alberta Legislation exam (some exceptions may apply).  See Interprovincial Transfer for information on how to apply.

New Pesticide Applicator Core Manual
has been replaced with a new Canadian Pesticide Applicator Core Manual (Alberta Edition).  The new manual includes all the basic knowledge requirements identified by the Standard of Pesticide Education, Training and Certification in Canada (National Standard) and all the Alberta provincial legislation.  The New core manual reflects a Canadian approach to applicator training, is more student and learning oriented, and follows the National Standard format more closely.  Individuals training to become Authorized Assistants or Pesticide Applicators who had purchased the old core manual can still use them until January 2012, to prepare to write the certification exam.  The core exam will continue with the same number of questions for each concept area.

Note: For 2011, trainers may be teaching to the old or new core. If attending a training tutorial that covers core material, the concepts being dealt with by the trainer are similar for the old or new core material, but the presentation of the material may or may not follow the layout of your manual.
