BPCA leads the way in pest control training. BPCA is known for our independence and quality of delivery. We provide a variety of introductory and specialist training programmes.
To administer professional pest control services you're required to be professionally trained, and if you're using pesticides, you have a legal obligation, under the Control of Pesticides Regulations (COPR), to be adequately trained and competent. You also have a safety obligation to the environment, other people and non-target species, as well as yourself. By attending BPCA courses pest control technicians will learn how to control pests safely, legally and effectively.

Online learning offers you a flexible approach to pest control training.
As an alternative method to classroom training such as the General or Modular Pest Control Courses, our online learning allows you to study at home and in your own time. It covers the syllabus relating to the RSPH/BPCA Level 2 Award in Pest Management qualification.
As an added benefit when studying the General and Modular Pest Control Courses, you will also receive free access to our online learning portal to support your preparation before your classroom section of the course begins.
The BPM Manual, available in A4 and A5, is an extensive reference manual for the management of pests in the UK, and is regarded as the key reference manual for the British pest control industry.
