The North Carolina Pest Management Association (NCPMA) had five individuals complete its Premier Technician Program throughout the courses offered Dec. 13-14.

Premier Technician is a course designed to elevate a pest management professional’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 professionals develop a deeper and clear 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.

In order 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, Bell Laboratories, Corteva Agriscience, Envu, FMC and Syngenta.
