The registration period has closed for this event.

Registration open through 7/15/2021 5:00 PM Central Time (US & Canada)


Termite University is specifically designed to provide training and recertification for termite technicians, pest control company owners and managers and other members of Mississippi’s structural pest control industry.  (10 training hours) 

This training is co-sponsored by the Mississippi State University Extension Service’s Structural Insect Management Program and the Mississippi Department of Agriculture’s Bureau of Plant Industry in cooperation with the Mississippi Pest Control Association.

Termite University is normally offered on campus at Mississippi State University and at the Redd Pest Training Facility at the MSU Horse Park.  However, during this period of heightened Covid-19 concerns, Termite University training is only being offered as a multi-day webinar.  We hope to resume on-campus training this fall.

The webinar schedule is designed to allow participants to attend training during the morning, have time for work during the remainder of the day and avoid excessively long periods of sitting at the computer screen.
