Ordering Manuals

Virginia pesticide applicator training manuals are available for purchase from Virginia Tech. You can either purchase these online below or use other available purchasing options. Please make sure your order is correct once you place it.
NOTE: Effective July 1, 2015, pesticide applicator training manuals will be printed off-site through a contract with OfficeMax. This print-on-demand system will eliminate storage costs and provide a direct-to-client purchasing system.This will enable us to continue to hold down overhead costs and thus maintain current manual prices. Since the books will no longer be printed at Virginia Tech or stored in our Extension Distribution Center, customers will no longer be able to walk into the center to purchase manuals. As of July 1, all purchases must be transacted through Extension's online store. Virginia customers should allow 3 business days from date of purchase to receive manuals.
  • Manuals are NOT returnable. There is a 60-day limit on resolution of transactions. Manual prices are set - we have no means to discount by volume or to certain entities. Prices are subject to change without notice. 
  • The university has contracted with an outside e-commerce service provider to handle online orders. The online ordering system is linked below. No ordering information is kept on the VTPP website or by Virginia Tech. The e-commerce site is secure and will protect your privacy.
