Re: Private Applicators Re-certification
Once again it is private applicators re-certification time. If your private pesticide license expires on December 31, 2019 you must be re-certified by September 30, 2019. If you allow your license to expire the only way you can be re-certified is to take a written examination given by the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.
I want to encourage you to attend one “V” and one “X” training to prevent your license from expiring. Because of new rule changes made by NCDA&CS that went into effect on October 1, 2002, you will be required to obtain an extra 2 hours of credit for re-certification besides the regular 2 hours safety credit that you normally receive every 3 years. You will have to attend 2 classes, the first is V (Safety) training and the second is X (Extended) training.
Also, we have received several calls regarding soil Fumigation Training. We have scheduled one session for this on Thursday February 26th between 3:30-4:30 prior to the scheduled V training.
Please attend one class from the V and X sections below. Re-certification dates and times are listed below. Please do not hesitate to call me at 640-6606 if you have any questions regarding your license.
