Grain Grading School

Ohio Department of Agriculture - Reynoldsburg, OH

Are you looking to obtain your Commodity Tester Certificate? Or, do you already have your Commodity Tester Certificate and need to renew it?

This Grain Grading School – approved by the Ohio Department of Agriculture – is structured to provide certification/recertification opportunities.

Individuals seeking certification will receive training in the procedures for grading corn, soybeans and wheat, as well as sampling and equipment, and will then 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 who perform a
quality test for the purpose of applying a premium or discount on 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.
