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.

Introduction to Wildlife Management - Online Classroom

Wildlife Management maintains populations of wild animals at levels consistent with the best interest of wildlife and the public.

Pest management professionals need to maintain the highest levels of risk management for their customers whilst being aware of non-target species and animals protected by legislation.

Virtual classroom training by British Pest Control Association

This is a one-day virtual classroom course. 10.30am to 3.00pm.

There will be regular breaks, including one for lunch. 

Virtual classroom programmes have limited places, so you can ask questions and get involved in the training from the comfort of your home or work. The BPCA virtual classroom is accessible via Zoom.

Smartphones will all so work, however the session is not optimised for very small screens.

This is a training course, not a webinar. Your tutor will be able to see you and you can ask questions face-to-face throughout the session. You tutor will ask you questions to check your understanding, so you’ll need to have your camera and microphone on during the teaching.
