How to get into pest control as a career

Pest Control TrainingAt Pest Solution, we do not just offer pest management services to clients, but we also offer a variety of training courses for those who wish to work in pest control. We frequently get enquiries from people who are interested in pest control but do not know where to start.
Pest control is an extremely practical skill and experience in the field is vital, however, to be able to use professional products it is necessary to obtain a qualification. Here at Pest Solution, there are two qualifications that we recommend:

  • RSPH Level 2 Award in the Safe Use of Rodenticides – This is a one-day course that focusses on rodent control. It is a really good starting point if you want to concentrate solely on rodents and is assessed by a 25-mark multiple choice exam at the end of the day. The results usually come back to us within a week, so you can get started really soon after the course.
  • RSPH Level 2 Award in Pest Management – This is a much more in-depth course that is taught over six days and covers everything from rats to bedbugs as well as the legal aspects of pest management. This is a great course if you are looking to jump into pest control with both feet. It is assessed by three one-hour written exams.

There is more information about both of the above courses on our dedicated training website, click here.
