The KPCA Master Technician Program is one of only a few of its kind in the United States. It is also an intensive, hand-on program.

Due to Covid-19. holding the program has been difficult as we work through various public health restrictions and make an effort to be responsible in keeping you safe.

The program will return in 2022! We are working with instructors now to lock in dates and subjects. We plan to get back to the traditional Spring and Fall sessions.

For those who have the designation, we have provided everyone an extension on the renewal deadlines. So your designation has not expired!

For those who want to go through the program, we look forward to the programs return soon.
