VPMA Master Tech

Master Technician Program Overview

This program provides technicians with in-depth, hands-on training using state-of-the art microscopes. The series of six workshops investigate seven major pest groups - Ants, Bed bugs, Termites, Occasional Invaders, Cockroaches, Rodents and Flies.

At the completion of each workshop, participants will receive a certificate designating them as a VPMA Master Ant, Bed bug, Termite, Occasional Invader, Cockroach, Fly or Rodent Technician, respectively. Once a technician has mastered four of the pest groups, special recognition will be made at the final workshop designating them as a Master Technician.

For current offerings please see the Events tab on the home page of our website.
