Ohio doesn't license WDO inspectors. They only license WDO treatment companies.

That's wrong Nick.

To inspect and report on the presence or absence of WDI/WDO in Ohio one is required to be licensed through the Ohio Department of Agriculture.

Yes, it falls under an applicators license but with fewer required "categories" than one who actually applies chemicals.

See required categories in my post above to be licensed as an "inspector".

Kevin is correct. It's a one day course with a test at the end, cost is pretty minimal. Definitely worth doing, in my opinion.

The Ohio license is Wdi. The training is only available through the department of agriculture. You have to put your name on a list. When they have enough people to fill a class, they schedule it.

For anyone still curious about WDO in Ohio The class is 2x's a year. Next one is in September. I wasn't unaware of the requirements as I was taking the training on NACHI, and when I was ending the training it states, confirm with your state the licensing requirments
(probably should be earlier in the training), I missed the Spring class by a week....I was told that the new form will be posted in August to sign up (since their fiscal year ends August/September. So, wait for the new one before paying the application fee.

Thanks,
Tony Diller

It's pretty much just a money grab for the state, fortunately it is only $95.

I wouldn't mind it so much if we could just send in the yearly fee but every three years you have to get re-certified by sitting in class all day "learning" how to properly fill out the NPMA-33 report.
