Integrated Pest Management Training for Applicators

Effective, smart, and safe pest management in schools, day cares, health care facilities, and public buildings is critical for ensuring these environments remain healthy spaces for learning, playing, living, and recovering. Integrated Pest Management (IPM) combats pests while improving management, lowering costs, and protecting the health and safety of people and the environment. 

Before applying a pesticide in a school, day care, health care facility, or public building, Michigan requires pesticide applicators complete an MDARD-approved IPM training. An approved training can be accessed at the link below. 

MDARD'S IPM Training Manual 

After reviewing the training manual and completing the IPM knowledge self-check, submit the verification form in the manual via email or mail. After you submit the form, a certificate of completion will be sent to you via email or mailed to the address provided. Keep your IPM training certificate for your records.
