Grain Grading School

Commodity Testers Certification/Recertification

Ohio Department of Agriculture

These schools, approved by the Ohio Department of Agriculture, are structured to provide Commodity Tester certification/recertification opportunities. Individuals seeking certification will receive training in the procedures for grading corn, soybeans and wheat, as well as sampling and equipment, then will take an open-book exam consisting of 50 questions. Those seeking recertification receive the same training and sign a verification of attendance form.

The Ohio Commodity Handler Law requires all individuals grading commodities to be certified. New commodity testers must pass (80 percent) a written exam. Those currently certified must either fulfill continuing education requirements, or pass the written exam once every three years to renew their Commodity Tester Certificate.
