During this time of social distancing you can still get your techs certified - just set them up on a computer with internet access. A weblink will be shared to each tech’s own, unique email address to access the live stream session. You can even train several techs at once - just keep them 6 feet apart!

The full WDI program will be taught via a live webinar event by Bryan Vaughan, BCE and John Reid, VPMA WDI Chair. Interaction between trainers & audience will be facilited by open mic Q&A sessions and participant survey polling. Ensure that your tech is able to carefully detect conducive conditions, know the habits and damage of wood destroying organisms and is able to accurately pinpoint and report signs of infestations.

Advanced Study Requiredwdir logo green - each registrant will receive an electronic (pdf) version of the manual to download and read prior to the workshop. Allow ample time to cover the first 5 chapters independently.

Attendance does not ensure certification. Each participant must pass a 50 question multiple choice, true/false format exam administered at the end of the workshop, with at least a 75%.

To earn certification, each participant must be employed by a VDACS-licensed pest management company and have minimum certification in category 60 (registered technician). Those not meeting requierments can still attend the course.

In Virginia, pursuant to Gov. Northam's Executive Order 55 2.a on March 30, 2020, all public and private in-person gatherings of more than ten individuals are prohibited. This includes parties, celebrations, religious, or other social events, whether they occur indoor or outdoor. This restriction does not apply: a. To the operation of businesses not required to close to the public under Executive Order 53
Remember: You are not required to continue operations, but if you do you have the responsibility to follow CDC Guidelines on social distancing and disinfection of common surfaces, and in Virginia, you may not have a gathering of more than 10 people.
