2018 Spring Workshop
Note: This year's Spring Workshop will be different than other years. The first day (April 11th) will be a full day with Larviciding Bioassay and Customer Service Training. The second day (April 12th) will be a full day as well but will be the Train The Trainer program (with an attendee limit of 35).
This year's Spring Workshop will be held April 11th and 12th at Benton County Mosquito Control District, 4951 W Van Giesen Street, West Richland, WA 99353, (509) 967-2414. The workshop will be two full days, with a day of training on the 11th, and the 12th dedicated to the AMCA Train the Trainer program (with an attendee limit of 35). The Spring Workshop Agenda can be found below and the Registration Forms on the Events page. Clarke will also sponsor a half-day workshop on April 12th for those NOT attending the Train the Trainer workshop. More information may be found below.
The 11th will consist of a Larviciding Bioassay in the morning and Customer Service Training in the afternoon. Lunch and breaks will be provided.
The social will be April 11th from 5-7 pm at Atomic Ale Brewpub & Eatery in Richland, Washington. For more information please click Atomic Ale.
The 12th will consist of the Train The Trainer program. This program is normally a 2 day workshop, but we will be fitting into one jam packed day. Please limit attendees for this portion of the workshop to 2 per District/Organization. This is in place because we will be limited to 35 total attendees for the Train The Trainer (TTT); this limit does NOT apply to the workshop's first day (April 11th). TTT is NOT intended for seasonal staff. For more information you can go to AMCA's Train The Trainer, and scroll down to "Track 2". Breakfast, lunch and breaks will be provided for this day.
