To register for a school, check ONE training (license) under desired location (you may take as many exams as you'd like in the afternoon of the second day, but you may only take ONE class). Mail the completed form with the registration fee of $30.00 to the address on the form. If you need to order manuals, see the order form; you may include that cost with the registration fee. We are unable to accept purchase orders, online, phone or credit card payments, please make check or money order payable to N.C. State University. Only the classes listed will be given on that date. Also, some listed classes may not be taught if less than 5 registrants enroll. If the class you choose will not be taught, or if it is full at the time we receive your registration, we will contact you.

Schools start at 8:30 a.m. and are over by 4:00 p.m. All exams are given at each school on the second day at 1:00 p.m.

IMPORTANT (STRUCTURAL ONLY): You must be a Registered Technician BEFORE applying for the Structural Pest Control Certification. When you receive your manuals, mail the form in your Structural Manual to NCDA&CS at least 10 days prior to the test date. Questions regarding Structural Pest Control regulations should be directed to Victor Lennon at NCDA&CS (919/733-6100).

PRIVATE APPLICATORS (FARMERS): Private applicators wishing to attend the class will only benefit from the first day of class. You will need to return the second day at 1:00 p.m. for the test. The class registration fee for private applicators is $15.00. The manuals for private applicators are “Applying Pesticides Correctly” and chapters 4 & 5 of the Programmed Instruction Manual. Both manuals can be ordered from the order form, or chapters 4 & 5 can be printed from our web site (see above). Click on Private Applicator Workbook.
