Extension: fumigation qualifications can still be updated in 2017

In 2016 CRD advised that to remain in line with the November 2015 changes to the Plant Protection Directive, anyone who carries out invertebrate fumigation activities would need to update their existing BPCA Diploma and Module Certificates to the newly-launched RSPH Level 3 Award/Certificate in Safe Use of Fumigants for the Management of Invertebrate Pests Unit 1. CRD wanted all existing fumigators to be up-to-date by the end of 2016. BPCA advised member and non-member fumigators on our books and worked to these deadlines.

In December 2016, CRD confirmed to BPCA that there would be an extension until mid-2018 to allow existing fumigators to get the updated qualification. BPCA has therefore introduced additional dates for the refresher course:

  • 9 - 10 March 2017, BPCA Offices Derby
  • 5 - 6 October 2017, BPCA Offices Derby

For anyone who has passed Unit 1 of the RSPH qualification, and is seeking to achieve any of the optional units, these can now be arranged at BPCA’s offices or a venue of your choice. You will need to ensure you have collated a portfolio to demonstrate an understanding of the relevant unit learning outcomes before booking your assessment.
