Normally information would have been out about pesticide classes back in October, but this pandemic has thrown several curveballs at us planning for classes. We were fortunate to be able to be approved for 2 Hours of A, B, D, G, H, I, K, L, M, N, O, T, X on two different classes.
In order to be able to offer these classes because of in-person limits, we are going to have to do them virtually through the Zoom platform, and I’m sure that some of you have used this or something similar, so hopefully this transition will not be terrible. You can use several different types of devices to use Zoom: a computer with internet access, or you can download the app on your tablet or smartphone.
The link to help familiarize yourself with Zoom is:
If you plan on using an Apple iPhone for the class, this will help:
If you are using an Android phone for the class, this will help:
There are a few things that are required in the process of doing this. N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services requires that all the people that attend a virtual pesticide class have a camera function during the class, so that I am able to verify that you did indeed attend, and if someone from NCDA&CS jumps on the call, they too can verify. I have attached a tip sheet below that will hopefully help to walk you through the process of getting on Zoom so that it is seamless. I will be sending a link out for the Zoom closer to the day of class, just so that you have it when you need it and it doesn’t get lost. At the end of the class, you will send your name and license number through the chat function, and that will be how I document and make sure everyone gets credit.
These classes will be held on December 8, 2020. One class will be held 9–11 a.m., and the other will be held 6–8 p.m. We have a different platform to register for these classes too, called Eventbrite. Think of it being similar to Ticketmaster or something like that. Basically, this was the University’s way of being able to keep up with what agents are doing on a larger scale. So click on which class you would like to attend. It will pull up a website that will allow you to register. Fill in your information and it will send you an email to confirm your registration.
The registration links to each class are:
December 8: 9–11 a.m.:
December 8: 6–8 p.m.:
Please feel free to share this with anyone that you know will need credit, and if you have questions, please feel free to contact me via email (email@example.com), or call the office at 336-570-6740.
