I contacted the department of agriculture to find out about required training to perform WDI inspections and there are none, as longs as you don’t apply pesticide. However the lady I spoke with told me it will be hard to get business for this application because lenders prefer WDI inspectors who are licensed to apply pesticide.
There are tests that have to be taken to received this licensing and a fee of course. I was told to take 7A and 7B along with the commercial core to received pesticide licensing. I’m not really interested in applying pesticide but I do see the value of being able to.
I understand what she’s saying but the reality is I do get calls for WDI inspections so I don’t agree with her statement that I will not receive work without the licensing for pesticide application.
