2. You may skip questions and return to them later. You may review any or all of the test as long as you have time remaining on the clock.

3. Most exams have 100 questions. You must score 75% or greater to pass. 

4. You may take a practice test as many times as you wish prior to the real exam. Click "HERE" to take the PMD Demo Exam. 

Pass the Test What Next?

If you receive a passing score on the "CORE" and at least one "Category" exam, your completed Applicator License Application will be placed on a PMD Meeting Agenda for consideration. You may also confirm your status at the PMD website. Click "HERE" to go to the "Pest Management Professional" search on the PMD Website.

Reviewing Test scores

When you complete your test, be sure and print your score sheet. You will be prompted by the computer to do this at the end of your testing period.

If you passed your test, the score sheet is your written proof that you have passed that specific exam. Please review the BOLD text on your score sheet for licensing information. If you failed your test, the score sheet will tell you which "Content Areas" you need to study.

Failed the Test What Next?

If you failed the Applicator or Qualifying Party test, you may re-take that exam. However, you may not take the same exam more than once on the same business day.
