In the state of North Carolina, structural pest control certification and licensing is divided into three phases according to the type of work performed. A person may be licensed or certified to do pest control work in any or all of these phases.

This law also establishes three classes of structural pest control applicators. These are

Phase P - Household pests (cockroaches, fleas, silverfish, ants, rodents, etc.) by any method other than fumigation.

Phase W - Wood destroying organisms (termites, powderpost beetles, fungi, etc. ) by any method other than fumigation.

Phase F ­ Fumigation (to apply pesticides that control pests as a gas). This phase is not required for aerosols, fogs, mists or ULV/ULD applications.


Certified applicators and licensees are certified for a five-year period. Applicators may be certified for another five-year period by:

  1. earning continuing certification units (CCU's) approved by the Structural Pest Control Division and received by the certified applicator during the five years immediately preceding the expiration date of his/her certification, or
  2. reexamination taken between January 1st and June 30th, prior to the expiration of their current five-year recertification period.

Recertification requirements:

NOTE: Licensees holding an inactive license are subject to the same requirements as for recerttification above.

NOTE: No more than one half of the CCU's can be obtained from electronic sources (internet).
