With down time in the winter months, now is a great time to focus on your mosquito service certification. Are you or one of your ambitious staff members looking for a winter project? The National Pest Management Association (NPMA), through the QualityPro program, has made available Public Health certifications targeting mosquito and rodent services. Additional certifications for bed bugs, stinging and biting insects, and wildlife are in development.
QualityPro Certification – Background
To create these certifications, QualityPro brought in the ‘Pros From Dover’ including folks from NPMA, the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention, the American Mosquito Control Association, the Entomological Society of America, the National Environmental Health Association, a vector control district, and five pest control companies!
Before applying for the Public Health certifications, a company must first earn QualityPro accreditation and be in good standing. The package of materials and information that must be submitted is substantial and will likely take a few months to compile so be ready. Upon submission, QualityPro will review the package and either accept it or suggest modifications to improve it. All materials submitted will be treated as confidential and proprietary.
Getting your mosquito service a national certification is a major differentiator for your company and will instill greater confidence in current and future customers. To learn more about the program and requirements, visit:
Good luck and be sure to address all the requirements!
