In October 2016, the rules for the sale and use of second generation anticoagulant rodenticides was introduced and now you must have a certificate (approved by The Campaign for Responsible Rodenticide Use (CRRU) stewardship scheme) in order to buy or use these products. See Level 2 Award in the Safe Use of Rodenticides.
Apart from this, there is no requirement for a user of non-agricultural biocide to have gained a certificate of competence.
