The North Carolina Pest Management Association (NCPMA) announced that two individuals have completed its Premier Technician program.
Kaicey Johnson, of NC Pest Control in Fuquay-Varina, N.C., and William Miller, of Clint Miller Exterminating in Mount Pleasant, N.C., completed the final courses of the program in March 2022.
Premier Technician is a course designed to elevate a pest management professional’s (PMP’s) knowledge of the industry through the in-depth study of at least eight key areas including ants, bed bugs, cockroaches, flying insects, occasional invaders/stored product pests, rodents, wood-boring inspection or WDIR Accreditation, and wood-destroying organisms.
The Premier Technician program offers a continuous series of courses to help PMPs develop a deeper and clearer understanding of pest infestations from discovery to treatment. Individuals who complete the program must have worked in the industry for at least one year and must complete the wood-boring beetle/inspection course or have WDIR Accreditation through NCPMA.
To maintain the Premier Technician designation, professionals must continue to take at least one, 8-hour course every two years.
The Premier Technician program is made possible through the contributions of its Strategic Founding Partners: BASF, Bayer, Bell Laboratories, Inc., Corteva Agriscience, FMC and Syngenta.
