GI-BMP Online Training

The online training has the same content as the classroom training (about 6 hours). You take the online training on your computer, at your own pace.

Please read the Student Policies before you buy the GI-BMP online training. The policies explain the rules and how to get a GI-BMP Certificate of Training. FDACS Pesticide CEU's are not currently available for the online version of the GI-BMP training.

You must have a GI-BMP user account to use the online training. You can set up an account, or log in to an existing account, on the left sidebar. Be sure to select the correct training language option below to purchase online training (using a credit card or a pre-paid coupon), or to purchase training coupons to be used by others.

The online training modules perform best when using a current browser with an updated Flash player. For best results, we recommend using Firefox or Google Chrome as the browser to view the training modules.

How does "Purchase Training Coupons" work?

With this option, you can pay for online training for your employees or others. Use your own account (in your name) to purchase coupons. You will receive "coupon codes" to give your employees. The employees then create their own accounts and "buy" the training using the pre-paid coupon code instead of a credit card.

Each coupon can be used only once. It can be used for either the GI-BMP online training OR to take the online test after DVD training. The coupon must be for the correct language. Unused coupons are not refundable, but they do not expire, and can be used any time in the future.

To view all your coupon codes and their status, click "My Account" on the sidebar, then click the link for "My Coupon Purchase and Usage Report".
