ESA's Certification Program Featured in Pest Control Technology Magazine

In an article entitled "ACE Your Career Goals" in Pest Control Technology Magazine, author Bernard Wendell, ACE describes how to become an Associate Certified Entomologist (ACE).

"What can a person with multiple years of hands-on experience in the pest management industry who holds a bachelor’s or even master’s degree do to pursue his or her dream of becoming a certified entomologist?" he asks?

"They can take advantage of the Associate Certified Entomologist (ACE) program offered through the Entomological Society of America. Offered as an alternative to the BCE program, the ACE designation is geared more towards those with hands-on training in structural pest management."

Wendell, manager of training and education at Arrow Exterminating Co. in Lynbrook, N.Y., goes on to write, "Imagine when friends, family, co-workers or customers ask what you do and you respond, "I am an entomologist," with a warm smile on your face. It always makes me feel good inside."
