Day One – Required New Coordinator Training

All public schools in TX are required under Texas Administrative Code (TAC), Title 4, Part 1, Chapter 7, Subchapter H, Division 7 School IPM to adopt, implement and maintain a school integrated pest management program. Part of these requirements is for all Independent School Districts to appoint an IPM Coordinator by the Superintendent, and then attend an approved school IPM Coordinator training. This all-day course meets the requirements that TDA requires for all new IPM coordinators. At the same time, for those IPM Coordinators who have been in their positions for more than three years, this course will offer the 6 hours of CEU credit to maintain your IPM Coordinator certification. For pest management professionals and ground personnel this course offers a good foundation about integrated pest management, the laws and rules associated with pesticide licensing, school IPM and pesticide safety. TDA AG & SPCS credit will be available. This course is open to everyone!

Instructors Day 1: Dr. Don Renchie and Ms. Janet Hurley, ACE

Day Two – Advanced Coordinator Training

Advanced training is for both experienced and new school IPM Coordinators. This second day of training is ideal for those school IPM coordinators and pest management professionals wanting to understand specifics about insect pests and rule interpretation.
