Is IPM Associates, Inc.?
UPDATE: All IPM Associates
Workshops and Training Classes are canceled until, at minimum, after
June 1, 2020 in response to the SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) pandemic crisis.
Due to the restriction of no gatherings of ten or more people, the TDA
will not be approving any in-person CEUs or Training Classes until that
restriction has been lifted. Given the fluid nature of the COVID-19
situation, the length cancellation may be reevaluated.
In February, 1996, Ray
Thompson, Ph.D. Entomologist, established the consulting firm, IPM Associates,
Inc. (Innovative Pest Management Associates, Inc.), for the expressed purpose
of assisting the pest control industry with services that were heretofore unavailable
or too expensive for the independent operator.
Our goals were to assist the pest
control operator with services aimed at developing successful businesses. We provide informational
programs to keep our clients in compliance with the Texas Structural Pest Control Service
(SPCS), classroom training for technicians, continuing education classes for Pest Control
Technicians and Certified Applicators, training courses to maintain compliance with OSHA,
and other consulting and troubleshooting services.
Continuing Education Units are
offered in ALL categories for both commercial and non-commercial applicators. Our clients
receive customized and personalized service. Client benefits from our knowledge of SPCS
Audits to ensure compliance. We will even do Pre-SBCS Establishment Inspection visits.
We provide the "Records Keeping Program" for businesses licensed by the SPCS
for CEU's each year as part of our basic service, along with special discounts to our
clients on ALL training services that we provide.
We conduct classes at several locations,
and also perform In-house training for the convenience of you and your employees. Our
Home Study Program is for the Technician Apprentice in general and specific categories.
Our clients also benefit from FREE insect identifications given by our highly trained
and experienced associates. This also includes our expert treatment recommendations.
We will work with you to develop
profitable, state-of-the-art programs that you can offer your customers. Assisting you
with your success is our goal.
