US (MI): Online IPM Academy offers pesticide recertification credits

There’s still time to get pesticide recertification credits this year. The Desire to Learn Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Academy is an interactive, online program designed to provide a comprehensive and convenient online learning experience. The total cost of the course is $10, payable online at the time of registration. Upon course completion, certified pesticide applicators in Michigan can request six credits (1A, 1B, Commercial Core or Private Core). Participants can also print a certificate of completion.



This self-paced course features university experts and a full-service help center with 24/7 technical support. Current topics include:
  • An introduction to IPM
  • IPM resources at MSU
  • Plant science
  • Soils 101
  • Identifying and conserving natural enemies
  • Conserving pollinators
  • Using Enviro-weather
  • Scouting in greenhouses, perennial crops and vegetable crops
The course is a combination of videos, resources and interactive content. To participate, a computer with an updated web browser, speakers and internet access are required. Refer to the registration instructions to create your community ID and sign up for the course. It may take up to 24 hours for access to the course site to be granted. Contact the help desk 24/7 at 517-432-6200 or toll-free at 884-678-6200 for assistance.

Accommodations for persons with disabilities may be requested by contacting Erin Lizotte at taylo548@msu.edu. All videos include closed captioning.
