Education & Training

Wildlife Control Officers and Pest Management Professionals have special educational and training needs. Trapping wild animals, using pesticides and other chemical treatments, and the use of lethal techniques for wildlife control all require special training. In addition, many techniques for wildlife control are subject to local, state, and federal regulations.

Below is a list of technical materials, training workshops, and links to various regulatory agencies that can assist professionals performing their jobs.
