beane mcbride earn premier technician statusRaleigh, North Carolina - Four Seasons Pest Control employees Christian Beane and Wes McBride have successfully graduated from the North Carolina Pest Management Association’s (NCPMA) Premier Technician Program. The final phase of the program was held March 24-25, 2021, with eight participants from North Carolina and Virginia. This was the inaugural class.
 
​The NCPMA Premier Technician Program is designed for pest management professionals who are committed to the field and who strive to be industry experts. The program offers a continuous series of courses that elevate a technician’s understanding of pest infestations from discovery to treatment. The Premier Technician designation is awarded to industry professionals who successfully complete eight or more Premier Technician courses. 
 
“I’m really proud of Christian and Wes,” John Adkins, Four Seasons Pest Control president, said. “The program is very comprehensive and challenging. They have been attending courses and working on this for a while. They did a great job passing.” 
 
Beane and McBride have gained more in-depth classroom and hands-on training for investigating, identifying, and treating pests in eight different subject areas. They were introduced to and were taught how to use the latest in state-of-the-art pest control equipment. Course subjects included ants, bed bugs, cockroaches, flying insects, occasional invader/stored product pests, rodents, wood-boring inspection course/WDIR accreditation, and wood destroying organisms.
 
Beane serves Four Seasons Pest Control customers from the firm’s Reidsville, North Carolina, location. McBride serves customers from the Danville, Virginia, location. In order to maintain their Premier Technician designation, Beane and McBride must continue their education and take at least one eight-hour Premier Technicians course every two years.
 
“They’ll probably take more than one course before recertification,” Adkins said. “They are great guys on top of their game.”
 
The NCPMA’s Premier Technician Program is made possible through contributions from NCPMA's strategic partners. These partners include: BASF, Bayer, Bell Laboratories, Corteva Agriscience, FMC, and Syngenta.
