Are you interested in becoming a Certified Crop Adviser (CCA), but are intimidated by the exams? You should consider attending the Ohio CCA Pre-Exam Preparation Course offered by Ohio State University Extension. This online course will be available May 16 through September 30, 2022 and will allow you to study and progress at your own pace.
This course will provide an overview of the CCA program, and help you prepare for the test by covering basic principles in the four competency areas – nutrient management, soil and water management, pest management, and crop management. Even if you are not considering the CCA program, this class is a great basic agronomy course that any farmer, ag retailer, or anyone working with field crops will find valuable.
Cost for this course is $155/person and you can register for the course at the following link through OSU’s Scarlet Canvas: https://cfaesosu.catalog.instructure.com/courses/2022-certified-crop-adviser-exam-study-course-5867-2339
The Local and International Exams are proctored online tests. You must pass both exams to obtain Certified Crop Adviser status. The international exam is available on-demand, but the local exam is only available during the exam week of August 3 through August 10, 2022.. You can register for both exams here: https://www.certifiedcropadviser.org/exams/registration.
