Remote access is available to GPCA members.

This remote course will be similar to a webinar whereas the attendee will sign on and review the course in real time as it is being taught at the GPCA office.

It is our hope to reach members outside of the metro area who have a desire to attend the PCO course but are unable due to distance restrictions. This six week course is an excellent tool to prepare for the PCO exam. This comprehensive course is also a great training tool for the new pest control technician, a technician preparing to take the pest control operator’s exam or an up-to-date review of new methods and procedures in pest control operations for the experienced operator.

Attendees will be taking chapter tests online outside of class; final exam will be at the GPCA office online. Student should have access to a computer to take chapter tests (outside of class time) and will need to bring laptop to testing center (GPCA office) for final exam.
