About the course:
This qualification will provide delegates with an understanding of why the purchase and use of professional use rodenticides is controlled, and why other rodent control methods should be considered before rodenticides are used, in line with the CRRU Code of Best Practice. This qualification meets all requirements of the CRRU training framework for the UK Rodenticide Stewardship Regime and has been approved by the CRRU Training and Certification work group. Candidates wishing to gain the qualification can choose to sit the RSPH exam at the end of the course, and if the pass criteria is met, will be issued with a certificate by RSPH required for the purchase of rodenticides. However, if you already have a CRRU approved Proof of Competence certificate, and would like to sit the course as a ‘refresher,’ you can choose to not take the exam, for a reduced rate.
During the RSPH Level 2 Award in the Safe Use of Rodenticides you will learn:
• Reasons for commensal rodent control
• Commensal rodent infestations, biology and behaviour
• Non-chemical and chemical controls
• Post-treatment activity
• Health and safety, legislation and record-keeping
