The education requirements for North Carolina licenses have been modified to accommodate the COVID-19 stay-at-home orders.
NC Irrigation Contractor License:
Continuing education is being waived for 2020. Any credits that are earned in 2020 will be carried over to 2021. Learn more here.
NC Landscape Contractor License:
Landscape Contractors’ Board has enacted an emergency rule that removes the usual credit requirement for renewal. No credits are required to renew for 8/1/2020. Any credits taken this year, including the credits from Green & Growin’ 20, will be counted for next year’s seven hour credit requirement (for 8/1/2021) renewal. Learn more here.
NC Pesticide License:
There are no plans to extend credits deadlines for 2020. Applicators will be allowed to earn credits online due to the lack of in-person classes. The board website is here.
International Society of Arboriculture:
The International Society of Arboriculture has extended the reporting deadline from June 30, 2020 to October 28, 2020. Learn more here.
