"Train the Trainer" Certification Workshops

The AMCA will be hosting various Train the Trainer Certification workshop hubs for the Integrated Mosquito Management Curriculum sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the American Mosquito Control Association (AMCA). These two-day certification events will occur at various Regional Training Hubs in the United States over the course of 2017 & 2018. The training occurs in three tracks. The first track will be in the form of e-modules and cover basic mosquito biology, surveillance and control with an emphasis on Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus. Track 2 will be in a live training format. Using the Best Practices manual, attendees will be required to go through a case study involving surveillance, mapping, action thresholds, and control, working in teams with real data to develop an action plan. The third track provides help to all stakeholders with strategic planning and organizational development, looking into the future to plan for program goals and needs with regard to public health and mosquito control.

The Train the Trainer Certification workshops will be conducted by individuals who have received Master Trainer Certifications as part of this program. After 2 days training, students will receive the AMCA Train the Trainer Certification.
