Course prerequisites

There are certain requirements you MUST meet before you can enrol on our accredited courses. You must:

  • Be over 18.
  • Pass a Language Literacy and Numeracy (LLN) test.
  • Provide a Unique Student Identifier (USI) number.
  • Provide photographic proof of your identity.
  • Have your general pest licence.

Why do I need to do an LLN test? 

An LLN is a short test that checks that you have the necessary level of English and maths to complete the course. Importantly, pest controllers must be able to read product labels and mix and apply pesticides safely in urban enviroments where people and pets live as part of their job. It is therefore extremely important that your English and numeracy is of a sufficient standard to do this competently and safely. 

Where can I do an LLN test?

  1. Email or call us on 1800 842 100 (our training helpline is open from 8.30 to 17.30 EST, Monday to Friday).
  2. We will send you a link to the online LLN test.
  3. Complete the test (allow approximately 30 minutes).
  4. We will confirm your results.

Once you have passed the LLN test, you will be able to enrol on a course. 

What if I fail the LLN test?

Unfortunately, if you do not pass the LLN test, we do not currently have the resources to work with you to bring your skills up to the necessary Certificate III level. Therefore, if you do not pass the online test, you will need to do an LLN course with an external provider, before you can enrol. If you do fail the LNN test, any course fee payment you have made will be refunded. 

What is a USI and how do I get one? 

You need a USI (Unique Student Identifier) to enrol on a course and to receive your qualification or statement of attainment at the end of a course. USIs are obtained from the government and if you have completed vocational training before you may already have one. For more information on USIs, including how to apply for one, click here.

The RTO for this course is Rentokil Initial Pty Ltd (RTO no. 40919). Rentokil Initial issues the statements of attainment for this course.

What is an RTO?

An RTO or Registered Training Organisation is a training organisation which is registered by a State or Territory recognition authority to issue Australian Qualifications Framework qualifications and statements of attainment. Work Ready Training is not an RTO. This means that although we can provide training and assessment, we are not authorised to issue nationally recognised qualifications on our own. To do this we need to work with an RTO.

Timber Pest inspection and management equipment

To complete all the exercises in this course, you will need access to the following pest control equipment:

  1. Personal protection equipment (PPE): goggles, hat, gloves, face respirator
  2. Overalls (cotton or disposable)
  3. Moisture meter
  4. Tapper or donger
  5. Torch
  6. Probe and or penknife
  7. Ladder
  8. Digging and trenching tools - spade, mattock
  9. Pesticide application equipment - tank, pump, hose, appropriate nozzles
  10. Monitoring and baiting materials
  11. Termite duster

If you are already working in the industry, your employer should be able to help you with these. If not, you will need to purchase these items from a pest control supplier. They are likely to cost about $200–$300 (depending on what you go for). We understand that this is a bit of an outlay, but you will need all this equipment to conduct timber pest inspections and treatments, so it is a long-term investment. All exercises can be either actual jobs or scenarios but they must be at appropriate locations. If a scenario requires the use of a chemical, it can be carried out with water (to simulate a liquid pesticide) or talc (to simulate a dust).

Some examples of well-known pest control suppliers are: 

Smartphone

You will be required to film some of the exercises you do, so you will also need access to a video camera. We recommend you use your smartphone video camera.
