VPMA Master Technician Series: Rodents & Pest Ants

Learn to manage these pest groups and get 2 steps closer to becoming a Master Technician!

The Master Technician Series provides technicians with in-depth, hands-on training using state-of-the-art microscopes to learn about biology and identification, plus covers treatment, products, and best practices for each pest group. The series of 8 workshops investigates the following major pest groups - Ants, Bed bugs, Blood-feeding Arthropods, Termites, Occasional Invaders, Cockroaches, Rodents, and Pest Flies. After each workshop, participants will receive a certificate designating them as a VPMA Master in the specific pest group they have attended. Once a technician has mastered four of the eight pest groups, special recognition will be made at the final workshop designating them as Master Technicians. In May VPMA is featuring a Master Technician Series on Rodents and Pest Ants. Attend just one pest group, or learn to master both pest groups. Either way, you'll be one step closer to becoming a VPMA Master Technician! Recertification credits have been applied for in categories 7a and 60 for each workshop.
