Wood Destroying Insect Inspection Training and Registration Program
NEPMA has developed a professional, pest management industry-specific training and registration program for conducting inspections and recommending treatment options for wood destroying insects (WDI). This program represents the Association’s formal training and registration program and is open to all pest management professionals and other real estate inspection professionals interested in being added to the NEPMA WDI Registry. Professionals attend a 1.5 day training that covers the biology, behavior, and identification of WDIs as well as the legal implications of doing WDI inspections and how to complete the NPMA-33 form. At the end of the training, all participants take a written exam. Those who pass are added to the NEPMA WDI Registry. WDI registration is good for three years after which the professional must attend a 1/2 day refresher training to remain on the WDI registry.
The training program includes:
- 12 Hours of classroom instruction plus the registration exam
- Comprehensive training manual authored by Dr. George Rambo
- Certificate of completion of the W.D.I. training program (good for 3 years)
- CEUs for Category 43 and CORE
- 12 CEUs for MA Board of Registration for Home Inspectors
- 12 ASHI MRCs
- Re-certification classes are held in the beginning of December.
- The 1.5 day WDI class is held each year in January and includes both instruction and a comprehensive manual.
