Two chances to prepare for the ACE exam

If you've been thinking you'd like take the Associate Certified Entomologist (ACE) exam, two opportunities are coming up soon.  The IPM Experience House will be sponsoring an ACE prep class and exam on Dec. 20, 21.  And the Annual Texas A&M University Urban Pest Management Conference and Workshop will also host a class on Jan. 16, with exam on Jan. 17.

Prep classes provide a format for a condensed review of materials covered by the ACE Exam.  Topics included in the two day course include:

  • Intro to the ACE program
  • Insect biology and morphology
  • IPM
  • Toxicology, Safety and Laws
  • Wood destroying insects
  • Biting and stinging arthropods
  • Cockroaches

The Dec. class will be offered over one-and-a-half days and will include some lab activities to supplement the traditional classroom review.  This class will be held at the Texas A&M AgriLife Center at Dallas campus, located in north Dallas, on Coit Road.  Class will start at 8:30 and go until 5 pm.  Microscopes will be provided to look at stored product pests and ants.  Click here if you would like to learn more or to register.  Time is running out.
