Training the Experts

Animals are resourceful, so we are too. Our industry-defining training process offers comprehensive topics that helped define the industry. Trutech Wildlife Service training increases and improves the skills of our employees.

Decades of Experience Distilled

As one of the first in the field, Trutech/Critter Control created best practices for wildlife removal. Our training program includes core field training, leadership training, sales training, and safety training. Some examples of the topics include ladder safety, proper animal handling, and species-specific animal trapping.

Our comprehensive training not only increases and improves the skills of our employees but also ensures they perform their job safely.

Continuous Training

Training starts on day one and doesn’t stop. All new hires complete training that includes field training, virtual classroom, and online studies. The training culminates with real-world, hands-on coaching to gain experience with manager/tenured employees.

Each month, employees will learn new skills in safety, technical skills, customer service, and sales. District Managers take time monthly to provide on-the-job coaching to each employee.

“I am a customer of Trutech and I just wanted to tell you that you have a very dedicated and knowledgeable technician in Ansley Sherlock. We had a difficult rat problem and she has worked tirelessly to help us. She is friendly and pleasant. I know that she will succeed in getting rid of our rats. She is patient and answers all our questions. We definitely will recommend your company to anyone who needs your services.”
“Dear Trutech, yesterday happened just like you promised! You had told me that if I saw a snake on our property again to call you any day or any time because that’s the best time to catch them – that is, soon after they’re spotted. You sent Alfred Burns right away and Nick Yohn, D.M. arrived, shortly thereafter. Removing that 65″ snake from our yard was a great relief for my wife and me. You have kept every promise you’ve made and you have provided great customer service at every step.”
