FAIRFAX, Va. — The National Pest Management Association (NPMA) and the Entomological Society of America (ESA) recently agreed to a strategic partnership to enhance the professionalism of the pest management industry through the growth and development of the Associate Certified Entomologist (ACE) Pest Management program.

“NPMA looks forward to a long and productive partnership with ESA to help foster and grow the ACE program and believes that cooperation is of mutual benefit to both organizations,” said NPMA Executive Vice President Bob Rosenberg. “By encouraging participation in the program, NPMA hopes to continue to help raise the level of professionalism and entomological expertise within the pest management industry through both initial exam preparation and providing recertification opportunities.”

ESA Executive Director C. David Gammel concurred, “Our leadership sees this new partnership as a long-term strategy to work together on taking the program to the next level and increasing the positive impact it can have for the pest management industry. There has been tremendous buy-in from PMPs with an average annual growth of more than 35% since the program was introduced in 2004.”

The ACE program is a certification program that was developed and is run by the ESA. ACE applicants must, among other requirements, prove a strong work history in the pest control industry, sign the ACE Code of Ethics, and pass an examination of their knowledge of structural pest management as it relates to entomology.
