Commercial Applicator Category 906 Rights-of-Way Vegetation Management covers basic information weed classification and biology, and management principles used for controlling vegetation along roadsides, railways, powerlines, ditchbanks, industrial sites (airports, industrial parks, large parking areas), and other rights-of-way. This manual is a study guide for people working or consulting in herbicide use in rights-of-way vegetation management, for those who use or recommend herbicides as a vegetation control option, and for those requiring state certification (licensing) in Category 906 Rights-of-Way Vegetation Control.
In order to be fully licensed in Category 906, you will need to pass the Wyoming CORE Manual exam (including materials covering the Wyoming state statutes chapters 21 and 28), and this manual exam. If you intentionally apply pesticides beyond the boundaries of a ROW you may also need to pass the exam for Category 901A Agricultural Weeds. Testing is proctored by employees located the University of Wyoming County Extension Offices. Locations and telephone numbers of each office can be found in Appendix F of the Wyoming CORE Manual. You can prepare for the CORE exam by taking the online course offered by UW Extension through the WyoCourses catalog.

How the Course Works
Each course module consists of a single, self-paced learning package that includes narrated instructional material and interactive assessment items. The online course modules correspond to the chapters in the 906 Rights-of-Way printed manual. When you are ready to begin the course, follow the Modules link on the left of this screen. If using this course as a study aide it is not a replacement for reading the 906 training manual as all exam questions are derived from the text of the training manual.
