NWCOA is dedicated to offering training to the wildlife control industry that assists WCOs with developing strong business practices and effective technical knowledge and skills. Science-based information and research is at the forefront of all training protocol. Training is conducted by Certified NWCOA Instructors (CNIs) and Master NWCOA Instructors (MNIs). NWCOA’s training coordinator develops new curriculum based on the needs, desires and trends in the industry and continually refreshes existing courses. Training is offered regionally and during the national training event, The Wildlife Expo.
COVID-19 Update for In-Person Training Events
We are working closely with our host hotels for training to ensure social distancing and minimal contact policies are in place. Provided the state and county in which training is being held are in Phase 3 of re-opening, we plan to continue with our in-person training events.
NWCOA and the host hotels are actively working to further develop room and meeting guidelines. Additional information will be coming soon, but here’s what we have planned so far:
- Registration will be capped to allow for additional space in the meeting room
- Seating will be arranged to allow for social distancing
- All food will be pre-packaged for minimal touch
- Hand sanitizer will be available
- Increased cleaning frequency in the meeting space
Our goal is to give you the education and training you need in these difficult times, and make that available to you as safely as possible.
