Several courses are approved for continuing education credits, and more courses are added every day, say Foster Brusca and Culley Christensen, co-owners of The Pest Posse.

“Getting states to approve an online training program has been tricky because each state has different requirements and expectations for what an online training course should be,” says Brusca. “So far, each state has been willing to work with us and guide us in the process.”

Pest Posse Academy provides an online video-based training through a monthly subscription. The program delivers regular weekly training on topics such as safety, pest identification, reading pesticide labels and specific application techniques.

“Our goal is to get continuing education credits for all states; however, this is not the main goal of the Pest Posse Academy,” adds Brusca. “The main goal is to not just provide continuing education credits but to provide a regular ongoing plug-and-play training platform for the small- to medium-sized pest control companies. Ongoing training is vital to the pest control industry, and these companies don’t have the same resources to develop and maintain an ongoing training program as the bigger companies do. We really want to raise the level of training in the pest control industry and give everyone in the industry a level playing field when it comes to training.”
