BPCA is delivering specialist pest control training via its new online classroom. 

Unlike webinars, virtual online classrooms mix a live speaker with interactions from learning on a far smaller scale. Strictly limited to 15 learners, you'll be able to ask questions, take polls and talk to other learners.

As in a classroom environment, you'll be encouraged to engage in discussions, share experiences and ask questions.
