Attention Certified Pesticide Applicators:

Due to COVID-19, the North Carolina Pesticide Board has approved a 90 day extension for Commercial Pesticide Applicators. The recertification deadline has been extended from 6/30/2020 to 9/30/2020. Currently, that is the only extension that is in effect. No information has been given for Private Pesticide Applicators at this time.

Online options to earn pesticide continuing education credits are available. Attendance via webcam or smartphone camera is required to earn pesticide credit. These classes are open to all applicators and can be found on the Approved Continuing Education Courses calendar of the North Carolina Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services-Pesticide Section website.
