Pesticide Recertification Trainings
These trainings are for those that already have current private and/or commercial pesticide licenses. If you want to acquire a license, go the end of this notice for information on when the tests will be offered. Every three years Private Applicators will need 2 hrs of ”V” training and 2 hrs of X training. If you do not have hours in either X or V and your license is going to expire in 2015, you will need to attend one or more of these trainings. Commercial licenses need only recertification hours for the category listed for the type license you have. The number of credit hours also depends on the type license you have. If you want to check the credit hours you need for private licenses, go to http://www.agr.state.nc.us/fooddrug/pesticid/index.htm and click on “Credit Status Search.” You will need to fulfill your credit requirements by September 30 to retain your licenses. Commercial licenses holders need to have all credits before June 30th. Remember, if you let your licenses lapse, NCDA is charging to administer the exams.
Following are the dates and locations of trainings. Most of the demonstration X trainings will include categories B G H I K L N O T D and X. Call before coming to make sure your category is approved. All training categories are 2 credit hours:

Like last year, we will offer both X and V hours on the same day. Our reason was to save you time and travel expense. For private license holders, you can come one day and get everything you need to renew. Commercial license holders will come at 3 p.m. only. If you need more than 2 X training hours, you will need more than one training day. We are going to offer the exams again the first week of December. Please call the Extension office (837-2210) to register for trainings and more information on the school in December.
