Editor’s Note: On Jan. 20, BedBug Central noted that due to unforeseen circumstances, the event was rescheduled from Jan. 30 to March 31.
BedBug Central’s educational arm, SenSci University, which features a platform for virtual training, is hosting its next event on March 31 from 1-2:30 p.m. EST.
“We’re looking to kick off 2020 and our next SenSci University event in a whole new way by featuring an all-women virtual presenter lineup,” says Robert DiJoseph, president of BedBug Central.
SenSci University’s inaugural virtual training event on bed bugs and occasional invaders took place late last year. The second event, “SenSci University Presents: Bed Bugs & Termites,” will feature Sylvia Kenmuir, technical specialist for BASF, and Sarah Latyn, national account manager for BedBug Central.
Kenmuir, BCE, will present “Termites Behave! Termite Behavior and Management Strategies.” She is currently earning her master’s in entomology from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
Latyn’s presentation will be “Bed Bugs: ‘No Prep’ Case Studies.” After working in quality assurance and validation and earning her master’s in global agriculture, Latyn joined BedBug Central in 2018. She trains pest management professionals and affordable housing groups on how to create and implement bed bug treatment and prevention programs, and she frequently speaks at industry events.
New to SenSci University’s events are the offering of CEUs for select states. Currently, Delaware and Michigan can receive the education credits for attending the courses, but many other states are expected to participate in the CEU offerings.
“We are committed to providing the training and education that BedBug Central is known for but with more accessibility and personalization,” says DiJoseph. “Our virtual platform VirBELA allows us to deliver our training virtually but still encourages you to interact one-on-one with speakers, vendors and attendees alike. We’re also thrilled to be offering CEUs for the first time for select states.”
For each ticket sold, BedBug Central will donate 10 percent to the Professional Women in Pest Management grant program. Participants can register here and find more information about the event on the SenSci University site.
