NPMA began its Workforce Development Program in late 2020 to raise public awareness of the great career opportunities in the pest control industry. With essential support from member companies, we have developed strategies to increase awareness and create interest in pest control careers among job seekers, including specific targeting of military service members, military spouses, veterans, students, and older adults.

Our Strategies Grow Your Talent Pipeline
NPMA recognized that fostering meaningful partnerships with like-minded organizations and stakeholders would be integral to the success of the Workforce Development Program. The partnerships we have established support the delivery of internship programs, mentorship opportunities and train-to-hire professional development for audiences NPMA would not be able to reach on its own. We are prepared to offer a clear career pathway with a supportive network of mentors and industry professionals guiding them along the way.
