Resistance Management Specialty (RMS) Certification

sky corn

ICCA has just launched the new Resistance Management Specialty (RMS) Certification. The Resistance Management Specialty (RMS) is for CCAs who do Integrated Pest Management (IPM) and focus their work in crop protection.  Not all CCAs work extensively on pest management, but focus on other aspects of crop advising.  The RMS allows those CCAs who advise on pest management to become more visible and recognized for their integrated systems thinking and approach to avoid development of resistance or alleviate resistance problems in order to meet the need for improved environmental stewardship.  It allows CCAs to prove their knowledge, advance their skills and draw awareness to their professional abilities.  It should align with USDA-NRCS and US-EPA for pest management standards.
