This program prepares pest professionals to perform consistent, thorough inspections that their customers can truly rely on. Since termites and most other wood destroying insects are generally hidden from view, it takes a trained professional to carefully detect conducive conditions, to know the habits and damage of each insect and to pinpoint signs of infestations. Sending a technician out to perform WDI Inspections without this training can lead to missed signs of infestations, inaccurate reports and big headaches for your company. John Reid and Bryan Vaughan team together to present the VPMA Certified WDI Inspector Program.

NEW to the Course: Our team will teach you how to use the new NPMA-33 form which was required for use beginning on Jan. 1, 2020.

  • Each VPMA Certified Inspector is classroom trained, then tested to ensure that they are equipped with the knowledge and ability to conduct accurate termite reports.
  • Each Certified Inspector must be employed by a company holding a pesticide business license, which ensures that the inspector is backed by a company holding liability insurance.
  • Each Certified Inspector must also have a minimum certification by the Virginia Department of Agriculture (VDACS) that certifies their knowledge in general pests.

There is a self-study portion of this program so register early to provide time to receive study materials well in advance of the course.
