The CPD Certification Service has independently verified BPCA’s individual recognition and continuous professional development (CPD) scheme.
Independent auditors assessed BPCA Registered to the CPD Certification Service’s stringent quality processes, making Registered the only scheme in the sector to carry this mark of excellence.
BPCA joins other CPD providers such as Oxford University, The Football Association (FA), the Carbon Trust and the Royal Airforce, who all hold the accreditation.
To support the application, BPCA’s current training programmes, CPD activities and events (including PestEx seminars) have all been accredited. Attendance certificates for BPCA training and CPD activities will now carry the accreditation logo.
Karen Dawes, BPCA’s training and development manager, said: “BPCA Registered was designed by pest professionals specifically for our sector.
“Our steering group was made up of members passionate about CPD and great pest management, which is why the scheme has been so successful since our launch in 2019.
“After considerable work, we now have independent recognition that our scheme is of the highest quality. As more and more eyes turn to the pest management sector, we believe that individual technicians and their CPD will become increasingly more important to your clients.
“If you’re as passionate about continuous improvement as we are, BPCA Registered is the right CPD scheme for you.”
