2023 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. The link will show upcoming dates/locations of schools. 

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 pesticidemanuals.com or by printing the mail-in manual order form and sending it with payment. Please allow 7-10 business days for the 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 (919) 515-3113.

All of our 2023 pesticide schools are in-person. Exams are administered by the N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (NCDA&CS) on day two of the pesticide school starting at 1:00 p.m. When you register for a Pesticide Safety School, you are automatically enrolled in the exam session. However, the exam fees are separate and paid to the NCDA&CS Pesticide Inspector at the exam session. For exam-related questions, please contact the NCDA&CS at (984) 236-4594 or visit their webpage. Manuals are not included in the school registration fee and must be purchased separately at pesticidemanuals.com.
