Spring 2021 Online Pesticide School Schedule Available

— Written By and last updated by

The Spring 2021 Online Pesticide Safety School Schedule is now available for registrants who are seeking initial licensing in one or more pesticide subcategories. To register for a school, go to one of the links below.  You can either print out a form that can be mailed in with a school payment or go online to register for a school.

Participants are encouraged to pre-order their pesticide manuals well in advance of the school by visiting the Pesticide Safety Information page to prepare for the class and exams more thoroughly. Please allow 7-10 business days for manuals to arrive. Any questions about obtaining a license can be directed to the Pesticide Safety Education Program by emailing pesticide-edu@ncsu.edu or calling at 919-515-3113.

Spring 2021 Pesticide Safety School Dates:

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, our Spring 2021 Pesticide Safety Schools are online using the Zoom format until further notice. The agenda, handouts, and Zoom link will be emailed a few days prior to the school date. Should an online school transition to an in-person format, you will receive a notification email in advance. 

Exams, administered by the NC Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (NCDA&CS), are in-person. Please contact the NCDA&CS to register for or ask questions about the exams. You may reach them at 919-733-3556.
