Training Overview

The Healthy Schools Act requires DPR to provide integrated pest management (IPM) training to directors and staff of child day care facilities. DPR staff conducts training at child care provider conferences and other training events throughout California.

    The child care center IPM Coordinator and any staff who use pesticides, such as disinfectants or sanitizers, must take a DPR-approved training course.
