Attend A Pesticide
School

Pesticide Schools are hosted by the N.C. State Pesticide Safety Education Program with the help of the N.C. Cooperative Extension Service and the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (NCDA&CS). Each school takes place over a 1 1/2-day period and reviews pesticide material (manuals) so that attendees may be better prepared to take the NCDA&CS pesticide exams, which are offered at 1:00 p.m. on the second day of the school. N.C. State Extension Specialists, County Extension Agents, and NCDA&CS Pesticide Inspectors present lessons from the Pesticide Education Program's manuals and answer questions or offer clarification on issues that applicators face. Each year the Pesticide Safety Education Program aids more than 1,200 attendees who are pursuing their license for the first time. See the link below to register for a school online: www.pesticidemanuals.com
