The Irish Pest Control Association (IPCA) Diploma is now an accepted qualification when applying or renewing BPCA Servicing Membership.

The membership criteria for all Servicing Member states that “all staff involved in the eradication and control of pest species must hold one of the following qualifications:

  • RSPH/BPCA Level 2 Award in Pest Management
  • RSPH/BPCA Level 2 Certificate in Pest Control
  • BPC Diploma Part I [previously BPC Diploma]
  • RSPH Certificate in Pest Control
  • NVQ in Pest Control.”

The IPCA Diploma has now been added to the list of acceptable qualifications, meaning anyone with the IPCA Diploma does not have to take the RSPH/BPCA Level 2 Award in Pest Management to reach criteria.

If you’re interested in becoming a BPCA member, you can contact our membership team by email or phone on 01332 225 112.

You can find out more about Servicing Membership in the Membership area of the website.
