Pest technicians on the BPCA Registered CPD scheme can now apply for its highest category level: Master Technician.
BPCA training manager Karen Dawes said to support those who have given their time and input to drive professionalism within the sector and used their own knowledge, skills and experience to benefit others working in pest management, the association has introduced its new Master Technician category.
Members can apply for the top Master Technician category of the scheme if they fulfil the following criteria:
- 10 years working within the industry;
- Letter of commendation from an industry peer;
- BPCA member;
- BPCA Registered member; and
- BPCA Advanced Technician in Pest Management or equivalent.
Ms Dawes said the application process is thorough, with interested parties being asked to submit a written portfolio where appropriate.
She added: “We know that individual recognition is important to our member company employees, enabling them to display their hard-earned skills and knowledge.
“For those experts in the sector who have gone above and beyond to increase their wealth of knowledge, there didn’t seem to be a category which fully acknowledged that.
“Master Technician not only recognises the best talent in the sector, it helps create progression for other technicians in the industry.”
