N.C. Cooperative Extension of Yancey County will be hosting a “V-Safety” re-certification class for private pesticide applicators on Thursday, April 7, 2022 starting at 6 p.m.. The class will be held at the N.C. Cooperative Extension Yancey County Center which is located at 30 E Hwy 19E Bypass Rd. in Burnsville.

This re-certification training is for NC Certified Private Pesticide Applicators. NC Certified Private Applicators are primarily for farmers and other agriculture producers that apply pesticides on their own farm as part of producing agricultural crops, horticultural crops, nursery crops and/or livestock. Private pesticide applicators in North Carolina must obtain 2.0 credits of “V-safety”, and 2.0 credits of “X-specialty” within the 3 year re-certification period in order to re-certify for another 3 years. These credits must be obtained by private applicators prior to September 30 of the license expiration year. Failing to obtain the necessary re-certification training requirements results in the need for testing in order to maintain the private applicator license certification.

Letters from the N.C. Cooperative Extension Yancey County Center have already been sent out to known private pesticide applicators in the county which need to attend a “V” training prior to September 30, 2022 in order to re-certify. Yancey County private applicators needing “V” credits prior to September 30 should plan to attend this upcoming training as this is the only opportunity that is being planned to be held Yancey County for 2022. Applicators that are unsure of the number of credits that they currently have obtained, or that are unsure of their license expiration date are encouraged to contact the N.C. Cooperative Extension Yancey County Center for assistance.

For those producers needing X credits, numerous opportunities which include classes, field day, and workshops are currently being planned for the summer and fall. These will be announced in the monthly Yancey County Extension Agriculture Newsletter. If you do not currently receive our monthly agriculture newsletter, but would like to, contact they Yancey County Center. All the newsletters for the Yancey County Center can be accessed through our website newsletter page.
