Building upon the basics covered in Introduction to Urban and Industrial IPM, the Advanced course was just revised and emphasizes the continuing need to approach urban and industrial pest management problems with a true Integrated Pest Management (IPM) philosophy. The Advanced course assumes the student has significant experience in pest control, thus test questions are more difficult and a significant number of outside readings are required. You are expected to occasionally consult pest management textbooks, such as the Truman’s Scientific Guide to Pest Management Operations, 7th Edition, which is highly recommended and can be purchased through our online catalog also. The Mallis Handbook of Pest Control is an additional resource available from online vendors.
Who will benefit from this course?
