The same day at 1:00 p.m., the NCDA&CS Pesticide Inspector will be available to administer the test needed to obtain the license. The class and test will be held at the Yancey County Extension Center, located at 10 Orchard Street in Burnsville. Any one interested in getting a license as a commercial applicator will also be able to take the test to obtain a license in any commercial category. To take the commercial examine you must call and register prior to the day of the class. Those interested in attending and taking the test can call and register at 688-4811 or 682-6187.
