If you wish to control rodents in a commercial environment, you must attend a suitable training course and receive an industry recognised certificate - this has been a requirement since 1 June 2016.
CAFRE offers a Lantra accredited course approved by the Campaign for Responsible Rodenticide Use (CRRU) which is designed to help people plan and carry out rat and mouse control. The course equips the end user with the skills and knowledge needed to plan, implement and monitor a rodent control programme specific to their commercial environment. The course also provides successful candidates with an industry recognised certificate.
The course is suitable for anyone who wishes to control rodents in a commercial environment including the land-based and related industries.
The next course will be delivered at Greenmount Campus on 28 March 2019.
