Introducing BPCA Night School courses

At BPCA we understand that with hectic work schedules and lifestyles, finding the time to keep your skills and knowledge up-to-date can be a challenge.

We’re delighted to announce the launch of our BPCA Night School, a trial programme of bite-sized evening courses designed for busy pest professionals.

Evening training courses enable you to learn with fewer work interruptions and won't affect your schedule or require you to turn down customers for the day.

Our online classroom delivery format also ensures that the training you choose to do through the BPCA Night School will be cost-effective and convenient.

Each course has been designed with the aim of providing learners with a focused look at specific areas or aspects of pest control.

Training and Development Manager at BPCA, Karen Dawes, explained:

"We understand that a pest professional's day-to-day workload can be very busy and that often leaves people, particularly sole traders, missing out on important training and CPD opportunities. 

"BPCA Night School was developed to ensure that all pest technicians have access to the training courses we offer and we're pleased to launch this range of sessions with the help of our training partner Alex Wade."
