The Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Law in Michigan for Schools, Licensed Child Care, Public Buildings or Health Care Facilities:

The Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Act, Act 451 of 1994, as amended, and Regulation 637 require that before a pesticide application is made in schools, public buildings, and health care facilities, two things must take place:

  • A pesticide applicator must attend a Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development approved IPM Training Program BEFORE making a pesticide application in schools, public buildings, or health care facilities.

  • A verifiable IPM Program must be in place for each building.

This workshop provides MDARD School IPM Technician pesticide applicator certification and regulatory compliance assistance for Facilities Managers.
