Texas is one coastal state that has an extremely high incidence of termite invasion into structures. The Philip J. Hamman Termite Control Training School was developed in order to teach correct and proper treatments to termite control practitioners. The classes include lectures, field laboratories, and practical training with current termite control and inspection equipment.
The students will learn to apply appropriate technologies and proven methods that can protect structures from termite invasion. Exhibits, presentations, scenarios, and an outdoor laboratory are utilized. At the end of the three days of training, a written test will be given. After successfully completing the test and practicals, the student will receive a certificate of completion from the school, as well as Continuing Education Units (CEUs).
Students completing the school will receive the following continuing education units (CEU):
- 1 Gen IPM
- 1 Gen Safety
- 1 Gen Laws & Regs
- 2 Pest
- 2 Termite
