Overview in brief

This course focuses on both preventive and curative methods of rodent control.

It will teach learners how to use the most efficient and safe method of control whilst minimising damage to the environment.

Whilst the course covers key rodent control legislation, it’s essential that anyone working in pest control keeps up-to-date with changes in legislation and best practice.

The finer details

There are 5 modules with an assessment at the end of each module, which must be passed to move onto the final assessment. A minimum score of 80% is required to pass each modular assessment and 70% for the final timed assessment. 

The final assessment has a time limit of 1 hour. Please make sure you complete this assessment in one sitting, as you cannot stop this assessment once started.

You have 2 attempts for each assessment to get the required score.

Upon successful completion, a Lantra certificate of training will be available to download and print.
