Training Facility - License Exam Review

Group of people studying specimens for license examA critical component of the structural pest control license exam is pest identification. We offer opportunities for people preparing to take the exams to spend a day studying specimens from the NCSU collection. These are not the specimens that are used for the exam but are similar to them in just about every manner. You do not have to be registered to take the license exam(s) in order to attend specimen ID sessions and you can return and attend as many sessions as you want.  Please note that there will be a lab use fee of $50.00 ($35.00 for NCPMA members) which can be paid upon arrival.  At this time we can only accept checks made payable to "NCSU".

Specimen review sessions are offered each month, usually on the day before the license exam is given. You can check the Training Facility's calendar for the current schedule of insect review sessions.  Beause the classroom is used for other programs, the specimens are not on permanent display. Please contact Patty Alder (919-513-3805 or patricia_alder@ncsu.edu) at least one week in advance to confirm that you are coming.  If we have no one registered for a particular date then the session will be canceled and the room released for other uses.
