Fulfill the IPM requirement

Class A logo for pages

GCSAA developed the IPM exam requirement for Class A members to demonstrate their commitment to environmental stewardship. While not every golf course superintendent applies chemicals, it was agreed that all Class A members should have a basic understanding of the concepts related to this competency.

You can fulfill this requirement in one of two ways:

  1. You can provide your current ID number for your state pesticide license.
  2. Successfully complete the GCSAA IPM exam.

Provide your state pesticide license information

With this option, you simply provide GCSAA with your current license number, date of expiration and the state, province or country that issued the license.
