Gather useful, up-to-date information on industry topics to assist you in making intelligent decisions in dealing with your customers' pest problems! The New Jersey Pest Management Association (NJPMA) continues to work hard to bring you the most comprehensive training – with a focus on industry trends, the latest technology, and current challenges in the field.

Throughout the day, you can attend workshops that meet your interests. When you register, you will be asked to sign-up for the workshops you wish to attend. Recertification credits will be available for New Jersey licensees and those who hold pesticide licenses in the following states: NY, DE, MD, and PA. Photo ID and physical pesticide applicator license must be presented by ALL applicators, regardless of state, in order to receive recertification credits.

Your registration fee includes admittance to the annual Trade Show, a valuable part of the Clinic program featuring vendors from our industry showcasing the latest in products, equipment, and pest control services and techniques. It provides an opportunity to learn about new products and equipment in a relaxed atmosphere and the time to ask questions of the vendors. Vendors are available throughout the morning and until 2:45pm in the afternoon. Lunch and dinner (included in your registration fee) are served under the trade show tent.
