The information listed is regarding an enhancement to PSI Customer Services regarding TN testing candidates. This new number will be placed on TDA’s website.
As per PSI, due to the HIGH call volume on the current PSI Customer Care General line 800# we have set up a “Dedicated Phone number” just for the Tennessee Pesticide program. This should help with your candidates who wish to schedule exams, ask questions, etc. The wait time for the dedicated number should be much shorter and candidates will be able to talk to a representative much sooner.
Please feel free to share this number with all candidates who call into TDA who wish to contact PSI. The PSI Candidate Information Bulletin (CIB) on-line will be updated with this new number as well.
The new Tennessee Pesticide CSR DEDICATED PHONE Number is: 855-557-0624
Yes, the Nashville sites are open ar 4:00 AM to 8:00 AM a few days a week. They are also testing on Sundays.
PSI is dedicated to exemplary Customer Service and this is just one more way we strive to achieve this goal.
