Master Technician Series

This program provides pest management professionals in-depth, hands-on training using state-of-the-art equipment and top educators. This continuous series of workshops investigates major pest groups, including: blood feeders, rodents/wildlife, termites, commercial/stored product pests, cockroaches, pest ants, occasional invaders, flies and more.

At the completion of each workshop, participants receive a certificate designating their completion and intensive study.

Once a professional has completed at least four (4) workshops, they are designated a Master Technician from KPCA and Kansas State University.

To maintain Master Technician status, professionals must take at least one workshop every two years. A workshop is held each spring and another each fall, for a total of 4 classes per year.


  • Be a scientist for a day, using laboratory microscopes and in-depth learning to better identify and treat the group being studied.
  • Become better educated in the field, improving your ability to serve customers, distinguish yourself from the competition and move up in your company.
  • Your designation as a Master Technician will set you apart and shows your dedication to the industry and education.
