Structural Pest Course

Fees: $299 | Hours: 24 | Type: Online | Enroll

PHII's 24-hour Pest Course is the most comprehensive training program in pest management offered online, teaching you not only about pests, but how to inspect and write up your reports. The course was written in accordance with EPA guidelines to enable you to obtain your structural pest inspector license (SPI) and add this lucrative service to your business.

The course contains informative and easy to master lessons that will help you learn how to identify and detect termites and other wood-destroying pests including beetles, ants, bees, and fungi. You will also learn the methods used for pest prevention and control so that you can add pesticide application as an additional service.

This pest course has been reviewed by a respected university entomologist for accuracy and to meet state guidelines for pest courses. Lessons include information about the biology of dampwood, drywood, and subterranean termites, anobiid beetles, wood borer beetles, powderpost beetles, carpenter ants, moisture ants, leafcutter bees, carpenter bees, blue stain fungus, brown/white rot, and more.

As you complete each lesson, you will use interactive flash cards and take practice quizzes that will test and verify your knowledge simultaneously through instant online feedback. Your computer records the results so you can easily track your progress. When you finish the course and pass the final exams, you will possess the knowledge and skills needed to inspect for pests and to obtain your SPI license.
