BASIS PROMPT is an industry-wide initiative to ensure that professional pest controllers can show they have received proper training, have achieved the required level of competence, and have invested time in keeping their knowledge and skills up to date through regular Continuing Professional Development (CPD) activities.
PROMPT requires full members to achieve 20 CPD points over the year, starting 1 January. Twenty CPD points should take between 10 and 20 hours of qualifying activities, depending on the content and level of participation.

Not everyone can access these CPD opportunities and activities through the BPCA – as some are only available to members.
CPD doesn’t necessarily require attendance on training courses: any activity that can be defined as personal development whether maintaining, improving or broadening the knowledge or skills necessary for the execution of your daily work could be allocated CPD points.
