Investing in Your Techs

A little education goes a long way...


We deliver an enormous range of products for our customers throughout North America. But interestingly enough, our most valuable offering is something that can’t be moved by trucks.

We deliver an enormous range of products for our customers throughout North America. But interestingly enough, our most valuable offering is something that can’t be moved by trucks.

That’s because it’s not a physical product — it’s the knowledge that reaches thousands of pest management technicians every year via Univar ProTraining. Since 1998, we’ve put in an enormous amount of work with 50 state agencies to help PMPs not only stay licensed, but also expand their knowledge within the industry.

For managers who already count on ProTraining, its value probably comes as no surprise. ProTraining gives them a great deal of flexibility to ensure employees are up-to-date with accredited CEUs. There are in-person training sessions run by Univar experts, online courses, and a wide range of materials and resources available on specific pests, products, and environments.

What we consistently find most managers don’t know, however, is that they can use the PestWeb Plus dashboard to track employee training progress. Added to PestWeb Plus last fall, this powerful tool offers a birds-eye view of exactly which courses every technician has taken — and which ones they haven’t.

Basically, the dashboard eliminates a great deal of paperwork and headaches, and can even give managers new ideas about subject matter their team could master together.

By expanding the knowledge and capabilities of a company’s technicians in a variety of media, ProTraining offers managers a lot more flexibility than they may have previously thought. If you haven’t caught up on the latest ProTraining offerings, now might be the perfect time.
