BPCA releases Onboarding a pest technician framework and support

TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT

BPCA has developed a training framework for onboarding people new to the pest management sector working towards their Level 2 Award in Pest Management.

New resources for new starters onboarding a pest technican

Karen Dawes, BPCA Training and Development Manager, said:

"Onboarding an employee that's new to the industry can be time-consuming, expensive and sometimes inconsistent. That's why we set about creating an onboarding framework.

"The framework has been created by a working group of several BPCA-members and covers the knowledge and practical experience needed to be a great technician. 

"If you don't have the internal resources or facilities to deliver an onboarding programme, BPCA can provide you with a support package".

Framework and guidance document available now

You can now download the Guidance document for Onboarding a Pest Technician and framework from the BPCA Member Library.
