Univar Environmental Sciences Adds New Course on Master Technician Online Training

AUSTIN, Texas – June 15, 2012 – Univar Environmental Sciences, the nation’s largest distributor of professional pest control products, announced that it has added another online training opportunity on its industry website - PestWeb®. This brings the number of online courses available on PestWeb to 58. The newest course, #210 Pesticides – Protecting the Environment, takes an important and in-depth look at how pesticides may enter and harm the environment and how to minimize or prevent that from occurring.

The Master Technician online training courses on PestWeb provide continuing education credits toward license renewals for Branch Supervisors and Certified Applicators in states that have issued CEU approval. Master Technician offers courses in the areas of Structural General Pests, Wood Destroying Pests, Public Health, Fumigation, Turf and Ornamental Pests, as well as core courses on Pesticides and Safety. The courses can be taken online at at any time on any day of the week.

The Master Technician online training offers a tremendous convenience to the pest management industry for quality training courses. For licensed or certified applicators who face an imminent deadline for license renewal and still need most of the required hours of Continuing Education, this offers an excellent and convenient opportunity to acquire the training and renew the license in time.
