Following changes to the CRRU UK Code of Best Practice, training is no longer acceptable evidence of competence for the purchase of professional rodenticide. 
People who wish to gain proof of competence will now need to pass a 
regulated qualification such as the Lantra Awards Level 2 Award in Rodent Management. This 
qualification is supported by a non-assessed training course in Rodent Management.

The finer details

This qualification is designed to be delivered alongside the Lantra Awards Rodent Management training course.

Upon completion you will receive an Ofqual accredited certificate.

This assessment can be delivered in three ways: by hard copy examination question paper, by online assessment, or remotely by online proctored assessment. This is the online proctored version of the assessment.

Proctored examinations are timed assessments that you take whilst being remotely invigilated. The data recorded by the proctoring software is transferred to a proctoring service for review, and is also subject to Lantra's quality assurance.

A proctored examination will require a suitable PC, laptop or tablet, a webcam, a microphone, and a mobile phone (with a camera, that can be tethered to the computer).
