Level 2 Certificate in Pest Management | Pest Control Training Courses | Pest Solution | UK

Royal Society for Public HealthAlthough the Level 2 Award in Pest Management (formally the Level 2 Certificate in Pest Control) provides the basis of pest control, recent changes in the accreditation system have lead to the introduction of the Level 2 Certificate in Pest Management. It fulfils the legal requirement relating to the training of pest control technicians as set out in the Control of Pesticides Regulations 1986 and 1987 as amended. This qualification was produced with the support and endorsement of the British Pest Control Association and National Pest Technicians Association.

The Level 2 Certificate in Pest Management, which typically involves 90 hours of study, consists of five modules. Three classroom based modules - Vertebrate Pests, Invertebrate Pests and Safety and Legal aspects of Pest Management and two practical modules - Techniques for the Management of Vertebrate Pests and Techniques for the Management of Invertebrate Pests.

The course is taught over eight days over four weeks culminating in an assessment consisting of a two and a half hour exam requiring short answers and two practical assessments. This gives the trainees time to reflect on the learning between sessions and we find that learners make better progress when the course is divided into bite size chunks rather than an intensive course. We can also offer practical days out in Suffolk with a technician so you get the practical knowledge to help you in the practical assessments.
