Rokill’s Patrick wins national award after week with BPCA

Patrick Poore of Poole based BPCA Member Rokill achieved the highest marks in the RSPH Level 2 Award for Pest Management examination across the last 12 months, throughout the UK.

Patrick attended the General Pest Control (GPC) course with BPCA in December 2017.

Patrick Poore Rokil highest marks in RSPH Level 2 Award in Pets Management

He achieved an overall score of 205 (72, 73, 60) out of 225 - that’s an impressive 91%.

On receiving the award Patrick said:

“It’s fantastic for the company and me to be recognised for getting the highest score. I was surprised and pleased to achieve a distinction.

“I genuinely enjoyed my week with BPCA on their GPC course. Paul Westgate is an excellent tutor, and his methods helped all types of learning styles, ages and abilities. I hope to be able to learn from him again in the future.  

“I guess one thing I did that gave me a good chance of being successful was taking the time to think through my jobs for Rokill and attempt to apply the knowledge. We’re not here to just top up bait stations, so it was important I understood legislation and the context behind it."

Patrick joined the pest management industry in September 2017 moving from a career in support work at Marwell Zoo. Patrick is now looking to move forward with Rokill and gain the required experience to take his Certificated Field Biologist.

Partick praised the Rokill team, saying:

“We’ve got an excellent Technical team [at Rokill], and it has been brilliant being able to draw from the wealth of Brian Duffin’s knowledge. Our approach to pest management is to work with the client and other suppliers who can affect the success of IPM. The next 12 or so months are set to be interesting with continuous double-digit growth bringing new sites and staff.”

Patrick was presented with his award by Natasha Kaplinski at the RSPH awards ceremony in London on 13 September.

Many congratulations Patrick!
