School environments are widely defined as those buildings or businesses that educate and/or where people aggregate for defined periods of time during the day for the purpose of education.
Across the U.S., pest management in school environments has received a great deal of attention, and in some states pest management professionals must be able to show proficiency in managing pests in schools, through some form of documentation, in addition to any rules their state requires. In Georgia, the management of pests in schools is regulated by the Rules and Regulations of the Georgia Structural Pest Control Act of 1953. To this end the School IPM Workshop serves to engage pest management professionals in a day long workshop aimed at helping them interpret and design their School pest management services in light of Georgia's Rules.
This workshop awards 5 hours HPC credit in Georgia. It also provides credit in Alabama, South Carolina, and Tennessee.
