New behavioural resistance CPD assignment for pest professionals

BPCA has issued a new downloadable assignment on behavioural resistance, to help pest professionals keep up with their continuing professional development (CPD).

cpd-assignment-for-pest-professionals-behavioural-resistance

The CPD assignments are designed for those working in pest control who are looking to improve their knowledge and understanding of pest management subjects.

The new assignment, put together by BPCA's training and technical teams, asks pest professionals to explain the differences between genetic and behavioural resistance in pests, and how you combat them.

You can view the instructions and download the assignment on the CPD assignment page of the BPCA website.

The BPCA Technical team reviews the assignments and the best ones are awarded a certificate of excellence from BPCA, recognising the hard work that goes into completing them. 

There’s no time scale for completing the assignments - you can work at your own speed and if you’re on BPCA Registered you can submit them to us for review and CPD points allocation once finished.

The first assignment released was on the Edible Dormouse (Glis glis) and can be found here

Your submission will be allocated CPD points based on the number of hours the assignment has taken you to complete, up to a maximum of four hours.
