The Industrial, Institutional, Structural, and Health Related Pest Control Training, category F1, will focus on individuals and businesses in the field of Urban IPM. This course is being offered to address the continuing educational needs of the Urban IPM community and will be conducted by Urban IPM professionals.
A structural pest control applicator must be able to identify, and know the basic life history, habitat and damage of structural pests. From this information, the applicator must be able to determine a method of control, and if that method of control involves the use of pesticides, the applicator must ensure that pesticides are used safely and effectively. This training will cover the minimum amount of information that all structural pest control applicators must know in order to be a proficient pesticide applicator in category F1.
We will have guest speakers share information and expertise in the areas of Principles of IPM, Current Topics in Pest Management, Pesticide safety- what’s in that active ingredient, Insect ID Lab: Key pests found in NH residences, Bedbugs and their Resurgence, Rodent Management in Residential Areas and Pesticide Use and Record Keeping requirements.
Because of the present COVID-19 pandemic and the protocols put into effect by the University of New Hampshire we will be changing how the trainings will be conducted. We have evaluated each class and will be implementing some changes. Each class will now feature one session of ONLINE instruction and one session of IN-PERSON** instruction. A few of the classes will also require an independent, online calculations session. Participants must commit to attending both the ONLINE and IN-PERSON sessions in order to receive the Certificate of Attendance.
