Purdue University is proud to be a leader in technical education for the pest control industry. Over 50 years, Purdue's pest management correspondence and online courses have been the training of choice for thousands of pest management professionals. National pest management companies have adopted a number of the courses as standard training for their employees, and nearly every state in the country has approved one or more of the courses for certification or re-certification purposes.

Developed by entomologists at Purdue University, these noncredit courses provide the latest in Integrated Pest Management (IPM) practices with the flexibility working professionals need. In addition to correspondence, several of the courses are now available online. You may enroll anytime and study whenever and wherever you choose.

With the exception of the textbook, Scientific Guide to Pest Management Operations (7th Ed.), all course materials are provided upon enrollment. You may purchase a new copy of the textbook when you enroll, or you may locate one on your own.
