LEXINGTON, Ken. — The University of Kentucky announced it will be holding a series of webinars this fall in place of the university's annual Short Course, which was cancelled earlier this summer due to COVID-19 concerns.
"Since we aren't able to meet in person, we'll be running an 8-week online training program from October through December (every Friday from 8 a.m.-10 a.m. EST). We've got a great lineup of speakers which may be of interest to those on a national level (especially since the online format will allow those outside Kentucky to listen in (and possibly get credits)."
Topics Include: COVID-19 and Pest Control; Occasional Invaders and Pest Proofing; Pest Identification; New Products and Technology; Social Media and Pest Control; Technician Training and Reinforcement; Termites; Cockroaches; Ants; Bed Bugs; Spiders; and more.
Speakers Include: Jeff White (Bed Bug Central), Dr. Faith Oi (University of Florida), Mark VanderWerp (Rose Pest Solutions), Dr. Karen Vail (University of Tennessee), and more.
Credits Requested from: KY, TN, MO, IL, IN, OH, WV, VA, NC, and MI. Other states can be requested by notifying the conference organizers.
