Pearson VUE Testing Service

The Nebraska Department of Agriculture is now offering select pesticide applicator exams through the computer based testing service, Pearson VUE. Pearson VUE is a national leader in on-demand computer-based testing services. Below you will find registration information, a list of the exams that will be offered, and a list of their available sites. We hope you can take advantage of the convenience that this new service will provide for the certification of pesticide applicators. NDA will not charge for this added convenience, however, there is a charge of $55 per exam charged by Pearson VUE.

To register, create an account at http://www.pearsonvue.com/ne/agriculture/. If you have taken the exams previously, make sure to have your applicator ID available (found on your license or on your Pass/Fail letter).
