Practical Wasp Control | Pest Control Training Courses | Pest Solution | UK

Wasp Control Training Course Format

This is a one day course with the first sessions of the day based in the training room covering theory work followed by an afternoon practical session.

Theory session

These sessions will be tutor led and there will be discussions with the attendees after each element. The day will cover: life cycles, biology, other related species, non target species, reason for control, PPE - personal protective equipment, pesticide formulations and their application, health and safety including COSHH and risk assessments, report writing and record keeping.

Although the information will be presented by the tutor, it is expected that the attendees will become involved in discussions as to understand how the information relates directly to them and their organisation.

Practical session

The afternoon session is a hands-on session and will allow attendees to use application equipment and PPE.

After the practical session, learners will be presented with a number of possible wasp nest locations and asked to research/question possible methods of control and explain to the rest of the group risks that may be encountered and how they would overcome them safety, while efficiently controlling the infestation.

The final task will be to complete a treatment report including risk assessment for a fictitious wasp nest treatment. This will bring together all of the days activities and will assess that each attendee has understood the whole concept of the training.

The attendees are encouraged to bring along any PPE they possess, any warning signs, treatment reports or risk assessments. These can be reviewed and any areas that may need further development identified. An attendance certificate will be provided.

The course fee is £120.00 + VAT including lunch, refreshments and course materials. If attendees would like to purchase any PPE or application equipment it can be ordered on the training day.

BASIS Prompt CPD points will be awarded for this course.
