General Structural Pest Control (Category 7A)

Editor's note
The current version of this manual — on which the current Category 7A exam is based — is available now only as a PDF (see ordering information to the left). This manual is being revised, but if you will be taking the certification exam soon, the current study manual is the one you will need. The PDF will be sent to you via email, so please double-check that your email address is entered correctly on the order form.

This page will be updated as soon as the revised study manual is available. It will also announce the date on which the exam based on the revised manual will begin being offered, giving at least one month’s notice of the change.

Purchasers of the PDF will receive an email announcing the availability of the revised manual and the date of the new exam. They will also be offered a discount on the revised manual, good for 30 days from the date of the email.

Owners of the printed manual: The answer to question 1 on page 160 is incorrectly indicated as B. The correct answer is D.
