    • Online – a great way to do it at your own pace, from the comfort of your office, or even at home

Our new Rodent Management training course meets the changes in law, regarding the purchase and use of Rodenticides. We are one of a very few in the country who are able to deliver the one-day LANTRA certificated course in the Rodent Management.

SAVE TIME by learning how to keep rodent numbers down on your property – and even how to eliminate them. SAVE MONEY on wasted bait and avoid the thousands of pounds worth of damage rodents cause to stock, such as grain and bales. REDUCE RISK to staff and to public health.

IF YOU ALREADY OUTSOURCE YOUR PEST CONTROL, you can still save yourself a LOT of money. This course will educate your staff in best practice for preventative controls, as well as raising their awareness to monitor activity and spot the first signs to alert management.

The legal bit: Changes to legislation affecting the purchase and use of rodenticides mean that only those who possess a certificate of appropriate training will be able to purchase bait of more than 1.5kg – most baits are sold in quantities of 3Kg or more.  This LANTRA qualification is suitable for anyone operating within the regulations affecting Public Health.

On this course you will learn:
  • How to avoid harbouring rodents
  • How to protect equipment, property and public health
  • How to monitor and record rodent activity
  • How to comply with Legislation
  • When to take further action
  • The most effective and appropriate methods of control
The day of training and assessment is delivered in a classroom environment and can cater for up to 8 people. This certification will qualify participants to purchase and manage the use of rodenticides (rat bait) and, most importantly, will give you the ability to save time, money and minimise risks to staff and public health.
