In cooperation with the Association of Structural Pest Control Regulatory Officials (ASPCRO), the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) has announced it will host workshops in St. Croix, Virgin Islands, and San Juan, Puerto Rico, that are designed to educate pest management professionals (PMPs) about safe handling and application of fumigants, while illustrating the dangers of improper practices.
This training is not intended to equip PMPs with the knowledge needed to conduct fumigations, but rather, is designed as a refresher training for practicing fumigators. Experts, fumigators, regulators and registrants will all serve as instructors. They will cover topics such as Fumigation Best Practices, Product-specific Label Comprehension, Personal Protective Equipment and Fumigant Detection Technologies.
Registration is currently limited to practicing fumigators in the USVI and Puerto Rico.
