BPCA claims national award

The British Pest Control Association has landed a prestigious national award. Last year BPCA launched a new online learning package as part of its extensive training programme. And the initiative, which delivered a first for the industry, was named in the New Product Development category for the MemCom Awards - a nationwide competition that rewards marketing excellence.

Mandy McCarthy-Ward, BPCA Training Manager said: "We developed the first-ever interactive e-Learning course for the pest control sector and have seen some fantastic results.

"Pass rates have improved by more than 10 percent already and the number of people taking the programme has risen sharply.

"The initiative has obviously had a significant impact, but it's great to receive independent recognition and winning a prestigious award is fantastic."

More than 200 delegates from professional bodies, sports organisations, charities and others saw the winners announced at the MemCom Awards ceremony in London last Thursday.
