Day One – Required New Coordinator Training
If you’re a new IPM Coordinator and have not yet taken the six-hour mandatory IPM Coordinator training, this class is for you. This class fulfills Texas state requirements for IPM Coordinators under Texas Administrative Code (TAC), Title 4, Part 1, Chapter 7, Subchapter H, Division 3, RULE §7.150, School IPM. Whether this is your first time, or you just need a refresher course. The course instructors help coordinators understand their role in the school IPM program and help prepare them for TDA inspections. The course will cover legal requirements for schools, an introduction to IPM, how to monitor your schools under the new requirements, and a hands-on exercise to understand the difference between Green, Yellow and Red Category pesticides. Students are encouraged to bring their questions regarding their program and a willingness to learn new things.
Day Two – Advanced Coordinator Training
Advanced training is for both experienced and new school IPM coordinators. This training will offer CEU credits for those who are licensed under the Texas Department of Agriculture/Structural Pest Control Service or need hours towards their school IPM recertification.
All class participants will receive a 3-ring notebook with necessary forms and paperwork regarding school IPM program implementation.
Instructors: Dr. Don Renchie, Dr. Mike Merchant, and Ms. Janet Hurley
