First of all the law has changed for those who use rodenticides (rat poisons) as a professional user. It requires professional users to have a certificate of competence to buy and apply poisons.
Because the course encourages people to consider alternative methods of control before using first and second generation anticoagulants, it therefore raises the awareness of half life secondary poisoning in non target species.

As a result the unit covers the following areas:

  • legislative requirements relating to the use of rodenticides.
  • product label information.
  • understand how to minimise the risk of human contamination and implement emergency procedures.
  • know how to store and transport rodenticide products safely.
  • know how to manage and dispose of surplus rodenticide and waste products.
  • record keeping requirements.
  • understand how to minimise the risk of environmental contamination.
  • assess the environmental factors.
  • characteristics of rats and mice and their impact.
  • be able to complete a site survey.
  • apply rodenticides safely.
  • carry out post application procedures.
