BPCA Registered | Individual recognition scheme for skills, qualifications and CPD

Introducing BPCA Registered 

In the past, BPCA existed solely to support companies working in pest management.

After lots of feedback from members, we’re now recognising the individual contributions of staff members. We’ll do this through a scheme called BPCA Registered.

BPCA Registered recognises and records the qualifications and skills you earn throughout your career.

BPCA Registered Cards

By being a part of BPCA Registered you’ll get a BPCA Registered card. The card proves your commitment to professionalism and continued development to your clients.

Having our technicians recognised as BPCA Registered Technicians is great motivation for them and, as the scheme develops, will encourage our team to achieve higher qualifications. I think the ID card will also give our customers added assurance that they are in safe hands.

BPCA Registered is currently only available to employees of BPCA member companies.

Continuing professional development (CPD) and BPCA Registered

Your CPD isn’t limited to formal training and attending events or seminars. Much of a technician’s development comes from experience learned on the job.

A formal staff meeting with technical content is ‘structured’ CPD. These points are added in the traditional way.

If a colleague taught you something new while you were on a job, this would be an example of ‘unstructured’ CPD. You’ll be able to add these points yourself through your personal CPD account.

Whether it’s structured or unstructured CPD, you’ll get points based on how you maintain and improve your knowledge and skills.

Examples of acceptable CPD

Formal on-the-job training Informal on-the-job training
Accredited training Informal mentoring
Non-accredited training Technical advice
