One of the areas that N.C. Cooperative Extension provides educational programs is for people that need pesticide licenses for their jobs so that they are trained in the proper use of pesticides as well as techniques/tools for managing pests. On August 7 and 8, 2018, N.C. Cooperative Extension, Pasquotank County Center conducted a pesticide school jointly with the NC State University Pesticide Safety Education Program and the N.C. Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services Pesticide Section. Twenty-four people took tests and of those, 15 people were certified. Of those there were 13 commercial pesticide applicators and 2 private (farmer) pesticide applicators certified. This school allowed people to obtain the credentials to do their jobs and preserve their wages for a total of $465,000 as well as contributing to the economy of the northeast North Carolina.
