  1. I have passed all tests. Why is the license not appearing on my FOL profile?

    If you believe that a license should be awarded and it does not appear on your license profile in the FOL program, the most likely cause is that all tests have not been either passed or waived. Usually it is one of the “Initial License Type Exams” which are missing.  These exams need to be either passed or waived under each License Type before a license for the specific License Type will be awarded.

  2. Is 45g/cu. ft required if the fumigator can attain the 750 parts per million by volume (ppmv) at a lower dosage?

Are the rules the same for USGSA vs AMA?
