The Team in Blue
Training our technicians is the single most important responsibility we have. The major focus areas in the training of our technicians include: biology, insect identification and characteristics, pesticide compound chemistry and how they affect pests, equipment usage and care, various types of construction and knowing our customers.
During phase I all new service technicians are teamed with a certified licensed technician for the first three months of employment. During this time new technicians are introduced to company policy, supplied with technical study materials and work as an apprentice under the direct supervision of one of our certified applicators.
During Phase II, our new service technicians are evaluated, enrolled in a Purdue University correspondence course in Pest Control Technology and must successfully complete an examination administered by Clemson University regulatory and public service program.
Upon successful completion of the Purdue University course and successful completion of the South Carolina state certification test our technicians are fully trained and educated in the field of pest control. They then enter Phase III, ongoing training. Island Pest Control, Inc. is very active in the South Carolina Pest Control Association and the National Pest Management Association. Both organizations offer ongoing education and advanced training in pest control. We also work cooperatively with many pesticide formulators such as Dow Chemical in training seminars and field studies.
We believe experience, education and ongoing training are key in providing our customers with the highest trained service technicians in the industry. As a homeowner you do receive many services. When selecting a pest control service choose the one that trains its employees well; choose Island Pest Control, Inc.
