From March 2018, anyone wishing to purchase over 300g of block or 150g of wheat-based rodenticide must complete training in responsible rodenticide use.   This course meets those requirements and also meets the standards of the Campaign for Responsible Rodenticide Use (CRRU).   It’s the responsibility of anyone working in pest control to be familiar with legislation surrounding the humane and effective management of rats and mice.

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 three modules in this course and three assessment question sections. A minimum score of correct answers of 80% or higher is required to progress to the next module. You have 2 attempts at the assessment question module to get the required score.

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