IPM Associates Records-Keeping Program
The Structural Pest Control Service has passed a ruling mandating that
Certified Applicators must obtain Continuing Education Unit requirements each
year and the burden of responsibility for keeping up with and maintaining their
own records. Additionally, the Service requires each Business Licensee
to establish proof that the necessary CEUs have been obtained to maintain certification
with the renewal of all licenses each year. The SPCS has also passed
a rather heavy penalty for noncompliance.
In view of these changes IPM Associates, Inc. is offering a program
that will keep you in compliance with these new Rules and the fee schedule mentioned
below is now being made available to all Pest Control Operator's.
For this program IPMA will:
- Maintain CEU records for each Certified Applicator and all classes taken
- Develop and provide all the required CEUs for your CAs. We can provide a
quarterly status report and supply course information for any needed CEUs
- Provide Notarized Certification for the Establishment Inspections, which
will be conducted by the SPCS at least every two years. This information
will also be kept on file at IPM Associates offices. (We can assist
in the preparation for these inspections at 50% discount of our standard Consulting
Rate. Please see our Fee Schedule for the
current standard pricing.
- Provide a Notarized CEU Report to your office 30 to 60 days prior to your
license renewal, upon request.
- Provide the necessary SPCS forms for new hires (if you will notify
us) completed and ready to be mailed to the SPCS after you have them
notarized (if needed). If your new employee is a novice to the Industry we
will set up a file to maintain training records and report the trainees status
upon your request. On-The-Job training form will also be provided for you
to FAX or mail weekly to IPM Associates for references and reports
(if you want us to assist in keeping the OJT records).
- Provide the SPCB required classroom documentation for the Technician
Apprentice Home-Study Course which includes 20 hours of General Standards and 8 hours
each for Pest Control, Termite Control, & Weed Control at 50% of our standard rates.
Please see our Fee Schedule for the current standard
- Provide the Technician Training Course for your Technician-Apprentice
employees and have the SPCS License Exam Preparation Classes
available at the same discount as above. Please see our Fee
Schedule for the current standard pricing.
- At your option, we will permit you to advertise your company having the
services of a Ph.D. Entomologist available.
