First scheduled date Jan. 27th in Lubbock, TX
• The first one-day school IPM coordinator training is Jan. 27 at the Texas A&M AgriLife Research and Extension Center in Lubbock. This course is for new and veteran school IPM coordinators who need the six-hour class to qualify as their institution’s responsible IPM coordinator.
• The cost in $135 per person with advance registration. The fee includes training materials and lunch. Register in advance at https://tx.ag/LubbockIPMJan. Credit cards, checks and purchase orders are accepted.
• Continuing education units are offered for individuals who hold a TDA structural pest control license. The one-day course offers five total units for these license holders — two general laws and regulations, one general IPM, one general safety and one pest.
The training is designed for IPM coordinators, grounds managers, pest management professionals and school administrators but is open to anyone. All class participants will receive a notebook with necessary forms and paperwork regarding school IPM program implementation.
“This training helps new and established IPM coordinators maintain their program but also ensure they are ready for a Texas Department of Agriculture inspection,” said Janet Hurley, AgriLife Extension integrated pest management program specialist, Dallas. “As per law and rule, each school district has to have a trained IPM coordinator. At the same time, TDA is required to inspect schools to ensure they are complying with the rules. Our staff, including the other urban IPM specialists, are well-versed in what schools need to do to stay in compliance.”
