In order to be eligible and write the Ontario CCA RMS exam, you must be an Ontario CCA in good standing.

 RMS Exam

The first Resistance Management CCA specialty exam will be offered during the regular exam sitting on Friday February 1, 2019. The cost to write is $95.00 (plus HST). Exam registration for all 2019 exams are now closed.

Once the RMS exam is passed, an annual maintenance fee will be charged in addition to your CCA renewal, and the minimum CEUs required for IPM will increase to 10.0 (from 5.0).  The ICCA Program developed the RMS Certification to meet the growing demand for qualified advisers with focused knowledge and skills in pest and resistance management.

RMS Workshop

CropLife Canada, with the assistance of Synthesis Agri-Food Network, is organizing a two-part resistance management webinar to help CCAs prepare for the specialty exam being offered on Friday, February 1, 2019.
