Please Note: All Certifications, Licenses & Registrations EXPIRE MAY 31th 2014
So its 2014, do you have any CEU's yet, most likely the answer will be No.. if your like most PMP's I know.
Well the great thing about a new year, few bugs and a 5 month deadline is that you have got a lot of chances coming up to get the CEU's needed to renew your license.
You have the Wildlife Expo coming up next week in New Orleans that also includes 2 days of NWCOA wildlife training before the conference, 2 days of wildlife & bird control and bat training for 1 day after the conference, I will be attending all 5 days and hopefully 6 interesting nights on Bourbon Street.
Hope I see some others from Arizona there as well.
Next we have the Southwest Conference in Albuquerque New Mexico which I have spoken at several times in the past few years on Bird Control and Bee Removal. Its only a short drive away for some of you to get some of your required CEU's, looks like they have a good line up of speakers this year.
Now if you are looking for something closer to home so you can sleep in your own bed at night and not worry about picking up some stray Bed Bugs, your in luck if you live in Maricopa County.
There are a number of great local conference's coming up.
The 2014 AzPPO 4th Annual Conference will be held on April 29th - 30th 2014 at the Mesa Convention Center - Check out this website for more details as they become available.
And lets not forget Jack over at Chemtech also puts on a very good 1 day conference, but you will have to check with them since I have not seen any information on their upcoming conference dates.
So you say to yourself.... I'm a hermit when it comes to interacting with those other PMP's.
Well your in luck Mr. Hermit there are a number of online courses you can find to get many of the required points to renew your license., just search around.
So as you can see you have lots of chances to get your required CEU's, so don't wait until the last possible minute and then complain that no one is offering classes two days before renewal.
Don't forget to check out the NEW Dept. of Ag OPM Rules & Regs to make sure you are up to date and legal on your CEU's and other parts of your business.
