Grain Grading School

Vanguard-Sentinel Career & Technical Centers

Fremont, 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. Instruction is provided by Eurofins Grain Inspection and Steve Peters, Inc.

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. 

NEW for 2019: Recertification Test-Only Option 

Need the test but don't want to drive to ODA? For your convenience, OABA is offering Test-Only options at Fremont, Springfield and Wooster for individuals needing to renew their Commodity Tester Certificate, without sitting through the full Grain Grading School. The Test-Only options is available for $10 with a separate registration link, available below. Test-Only individuals are advised to arrive no later than 12:15 pm for the 12:30 pm test.
