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

Royal Society for Public Health The Level 2 Award in Pest management has been designed through the collaboration of the RSPH Royal Society for Public Health and the BPCA British Pest Control Association as the entry level qualification for pest controllers. This qualification was produced with the support and endorsement of the NPTA National Pest Technicians Association.

The qualification aims at equipping existing technicians and individuals looking to enter into the field of pest control, with the essential knowledge required by the legal requirements relating to the training of pest control operatives as set in the Control of Pesticides Regulations 1986 and 1987 as amended.

The course, which typically involves 72 hours of study, is divided into 3 units: Vertebrate Pests, Invertebrate Pests and Health & Safety and Legal Aspects. Click here to download the RSPH factsheet which will give you more details on the course.

The course is taught over seven days over four weeks culminating in an assessment (usually Friday morning) consisting of a two and a half hour exam requiring short answers. 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 with our technicians so that you can put this information into practice.

The course is charged at £600-00 + vat and £115-00 (no vat) for the RSPH exam. It is advisable that you have a copy of the British Pest Manual (£115-00 no vat) or the Killgerm Manual (£99-00 no vat) as a reference. Either of which can be purchased from Pest Solution as part of the course.

The Level 2 Award in Pest Management is a free standing qualification in its own right but it can also be converted into the Level 2 Certificate in Pest Management. Click here to find out more about the conversion course.
