Pest Control Courses

TME Trade Training offers pest control courses online, or delivered onsite at your workplace ( numbers permitting). Our training is informative and delivered by TIPRM industry experts

How Our Pest Control Courses Work

The Management Edge works with The Institute of Pest Risk Management to provide training solutions for the pest management industry. Our tailored and nationally accredited short course training programs cover the three key areas of training required for licensing and competent work. We also provide solutions for older, already competent workers who need to upgrade their training to the Certificate III level units. Learners are expected to be already employed in the industry.

Skill Set CPPSS00046: Manage non-timber pests

(Technician license units) 

Brief

The course covers all the competencies generally required for a technician to obtain a licence to apply pesticides in their State or Territory. 

Delivery mode

The courses are provided with a range of delivery options including face-to-face, self-paced online study and online tutorials.

Units

The units commonly known as 5, 6 and 18 are the latest release:

CPPUPM3005 Manage pests without applying pesticides
CPPUPM3006 Manage pests by applying pesticides
CPPUPM3018 Maintain equipment and pesticide storage area in pest management vehicles

Skill Set CPPSS00047: Manage timber pests

(Termite Units)

Brief

The short course covers units 8 and 10 plus the often left out, unit 42. We believe that even those who specialise in building inspections can benefit from Unit 42’s understanding of installed systems. The course is usually taken by licensed technicians with experience in pest work. While termite management dominates the skills, the full range of wood degradation is covered and learners will develop skills to also identify and manage decay and beetles as well as work in new construction. This course provides the skills and knowledge to work with timber pests and these are increasingly a licence or insurance requirement.

Units

CPPUPM3008 Inspect for and report on timber pests
CPPUPM3010 Control timber pests
CPPUPM3042 Install termite management systems

Delivery mode

The courses are provided with a range of delivery options including face-to-face, self-paced online study and online tutorials.
