The home inspection standards and state laws clearly state that code inspections are not a requirement of the home inspection. But having this knowledge should prepare you to do a more thorough electrical inspection. Communicating safety hazards and educating you client with suggestions about dealing with your finding is what the electrical inspection is all about.

National Wildlife Identification/Control

The course is structured to inform you of the fundamental knowledge and skills needed to perform wildlife damage in a safe, responsible, effective, and ethical manner. We endeavored to find the delicate balance between thoroughness and brevity.

Be assured that much more could have been included, but we wanted to avoid overwhelming students.

The Basic Course consists of 17 separate modules that are divided into two sections:

Section 1, the Core Curriculum, contains twelve modules. These modules are considered "core" because they contain information every wildlife control operator (WCO) should know regardless of where he/she lives. In other words, the content of these twelve modules is not tied to a particular region.

Section 2, Species Modules, review the specific facts and techniques used to manage human-wildlife conflicts with particular animal groups. For the Basic Curriculum, we included only five species modules, including: Bats, Raccoons, Skunks, Tree Squirrels, and Unprotected Birds. These five were chosen as they represent the diversity of issues and control methods needed to handle almost any wildlife problem. If you know how to handle the species of these five modules, you can easily learn to control others.

All the species modules follow the same outline: Biology, Damage Identification, and Control Methods. Only control methods that are considered suitable for wildlife control operators were included. We only excluded methods that were illegal at the federal level, so be sure to check your state and local laws to see if the discussed methods are legal in your area.

Summation: This course was designed to provide you with an awareness of the issues and concepts essential to the field of wildlife damage management. With that core information in hand, we then present you with specific issues you will control as you enter the field and apply your skills to resolve client complaints (species modules).

The authors of this course bring more than 70 years of experience in the field of wildlife damage management.

In partnership with Purdue University, AHIT is now offering the new Termites and Other Wood-Destroying Pests Management Correspondence Course. This new course includes extensive material on insects and diseases common to urban and industrial areas. This is a comprehensive training program in the management of pests in wood that you can complete via correspondence, from your either home or workplace. You can complete the course at your own pace in less than one year.

The course covers many different wood-infesting pests (diseases and arthropods), and provides comprehensive coverage of arthropod and disease identification, and pest prevention and control. Included are specific examples and the biology of subterranean termites, drywood and dampwood termites, carpenter ants, powderpost beetles (anobiid, bostrichid, and lyctid), old house borer, round-headed borers, flat-headed borers, and other woodboring beetles.
