This section of the course covers content from unit CPUPM3005. It is made up of 11 theory-based modules that cover the following:
Through our studies in human learning, we have come to realise that theory is just as important as practical for the best learning outcomes. This course contains many practical tasks. You will need to demonstrate practising safety procedures and show you are confident climbing into and out of a roof void safely, as well as feeling confident climbing safely into a sub-floor. These will be day-to-day tasks in your life as a pest controller.
This is the largest section of the course and covers content from units CPUPM3005, CPUPM3006 and CPUPM3018. It is made up of seven theory modules that cover the following:
The practical tasks in this module will look over what we have learnt and give you an opportunity to show you have understood these things. You will be given three Work Order tasks, which will be real life work examples where you can showcase your abilities, and seven site assessment tasks. You will also need to submit your workplace supervisor Training on the Job checklist in this section.
Congratulations, you're almost there! This final section of the course covers the remainder of unit CPUPM3018. It contains one very important theory module, in which, you will learn everything you need to know about using your work vehicle, storing and maintaining chemicals and equipment so you can operate with the most effective pest management.
When you set out as a pest control operator, it is important to set yourself good standards to carry throughout your career. This module will help. The lessons in this module will set you up well if you ever want to own and run your own pest control business, with attention to the requirements of due diligence. Understand the record-keeping that comes with storing and transporting chemicals. Develop good habits that you will carry throughout your pest control career. In addition, we cover what to do if things go wrong when transporting chemicals.
In your practical tasks, you will demonstrate that you know how to deal with a chemical spill, clean and dispose of a chemical container safely and demonstrate that your vehicle complies with legislative and good practice requirements. Not only will this mean you will pass this course but it will give you the confidence you need to be of service to your clients.
