After successfully launching 11 online pest control certification exams in June 2022, the Arkansas Department of Agriculture has decided to expand the number of digitized exams offered through Everblue’s online testing portal. Applicators can complete any of the additional 10 pesticide certification exams virtually.
While the pest control exams certify candidates in the management of pests and insects, the pesticide exams certify candidates in the safe application of pesticide chemical sprays.
The newly digitized pesticide certification exams include:
Using Everblue’s proprietary registration and test delivery system, certification candidates will be able to register online for their state pesticide exam and will be immediately enrolled into their on-demand tests. After doing a systems check of their computer, a candidate will be able to complete their certification exam from home.

“Our goal is to simplify the certification process, improve efficiency, and generally provide a better user experience,” said Chris Boggiano, president of Everblue. “Bearing in mind that taking a state certification exam is already a stressful experience, we strive to eliminate all the inconveniences and frustrations associated with scheduling an in-person test appointment. Now it’s as simple as registering, paying, and taking the exam from home when the timing is convenient for the test-taker.”
In addition to a better user experience for test candidates, Everblue’s automated test delivery workflow also benefits test administrators working at the Arkansas Department of Agriculture. Everblue will single-handedly manage the registration and enrollment of all candidates who choose the online delivery format and will provide online test proctoring to maintain the credibility of the exam experience. Upon completion of the online exam, Everblue will report test results back to the state.
“Online exam delivery and virtual proctoring is the way of the future,” Boggiano said. “It’s been a pleasure partnering with state departments of agriculture in their pursuits to become more efficient and productive. And it’s become clear from each partner who has renewed and expanded the partnership that Everblue’s online testing and proctoring software truly delivers above and beyond initial expectations and is the right solution for their needs.”
