The spring 2024 Pesticide Safety Schools are available to those seeking initial licensing in one or more pesticide subcategories. To register for a school, please follow one of the links below.  You can either print out a form to be mailed with a school payment or go online to register for a school.

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