Georgia Pre-Examination Training Program

Beginning on July 1, 2019, the Georgia Department of Agriculture will begin enforcing the requirement that all structural pest management companies that conduct structural pest control in Georgia, must document the training required by the Rules of the Georgia Structural Pest Control Commission for new employees entering the structural pest management industry as service or sales personnel.  The Rules require these new employees receive 10 hours of classroom training and 70 hours of on-the-job training prior to the new employee taking the Employee Registration Exam.  The classroom training  must be presented by a Certified Operator of the company or a person approved by the Commission.  The Commission has also approved the Pre-Examination Training Form document where this training must be recorded. State Regulatory Field Inspectors may ask to see these records for any new employee.  If your company wants to utilize the Georgia Pre-Examination Training Program© to meet this training requirement, please contact Terry by calling him at 770-557-2704, emailing him at [email protected], or by completing the website submission form.
