MPMA to host ACE workshop

|  July 19, 2019

Please Fill Out The Following Fields.The Michigan Pest Management Association (MPMA) will hold its second Associate Certified Entomologist (ACE) workshop for 2019-20 this fall.

The workshop is designed to help pest management professionals (PMPs) get qualified through the Entomological Society of America as a candidate for the ACE certification and then help the candidates structure a study program to eventually pass the proctored exam before the MPMA’s annual winter meeting.

The organization hopes to break the last workshop’s record of seven new Associate Certified Entomologists by adding more classes and study materials.

Interested participants should download a copy of the application package at mipma.org. Workshop study sessions begin Oct. 12, so interested candidates should start their application process as soon as possible.

MPMA has a long-standing goal of promoting camaraderie within the industry, says the association. This event brings together PMPs from across Michigan in the interest of bettering themselves and the industry.

Participation in the workshop is an investment made by both the candidates and their companies in time and money. By having MPMA host the event, many candidates can take advantage of an opportunity not normally available to them.

“When a PMP earns their ACE, that’s an accomplishment — it deserves recognition. Our industry and many customers in the marketplace understand what this designation means. We’re happy to help them reach their goal,” says Jeff Spencer, ACE, of Griffin Pest Solutions in a press release.

Because proceeds from the workshop help fund other MPMA activities, the organization says, the event is a win for all involved.
