The Level 2 Award in Pest Management has been designed through the collaboration of the Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH) and the British Pest Control Association (BPCA) as the entry level qualification for pest controllers. This qualification was produced with the support and endorsement of the National Pest Technicians Association (NPTA).
The qualification provides 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. It is aimed at both existing technicians and individuals looking to enter into the field of pest control. The course, which typically involves 72 hours of study, is divided into three units:
The course is taught over seven days over four weeks culminating in an assessment (usually Friday morning) consisting of three one-hour exams. This gives the trainees time to reflect topics 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 our technicians, so that you can put this information into practice.
Once obtained, this qualification allows you entry on the BASIS Professional Register of Managers and Pest Technicians (PROMPT) CPD scheme.
The Level 2 Award in Pest Management is a free-standing qualification in its own right, however it can be converted into the Level 2 Certificate in Pest Management. Although the Level 2 Award in Pest Management provides the basis of pest control, recent changes in the accreditation system have led to the introduction of the Level 2 Certificate in Pest Management.
The Level 2 Certificate in Pest Management consists of the three units of the Level 2 Award in Pest Management and two additional practical units:
If you already have the Level 2 Award in Pest Management or the Level 2 Certificate in Pest Control and would like to upgrade your qualification to the Level 2 Certificate in Pest Management, then Pest Solution offers a one-day conversion course consisting of a refresher session plus the two practical assessments.
BASIS PROMPT CPD points are available for this course. The course and assessment charges are as follows:
