| October 24, 2011

SUFFERN, N.Y. — The Pest Management Training Center’s President Barry H. Stangel announced the training center’s expansion program for 2012. For the past 20 years the company has been offering training & consulting services in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Connecticut. Now they are ready to expand their educational programs on a nationwide basis. They have developed a series of new continuing educational programs that will be offered to a nationwide audience. The categories will be as follows: General Pest Management, IPM, Ornamental & Turf, Termite, Aquatic Insect & Plant & Public Health.  As part of this expansion program, they will be hiring experienced pest management professionals as presenters of their program. This will be an exciting opportunity for experienced trainers to provide continuing educational programs several times each year in the geographic areas where they live.  The programs will be offered in training seminars in multiple states on the same day. Each training program comes with workbooks that are produced in English or Spanish. These workbooks can be used to develop a reference library for individuals attending our workshops.  Each program will be pre-approved by the state’s regulatory agency and re-certification credits will be awarded to eligible participants. Experienced trainers that are interested in joining this growing organization can apply at www.pestmanagementtraining.com.
