Q. How long will the course take?

On average the course would take a person working in the pest industry about 160 to 180 hours to complete. That equates to about one month of study. You can take your time with this termite course or do it as quickly as you like, but you will need to complete the course within one year.

Q. How is this course assessed?

In order to pass the Timber Pest: Inspections and Management course, you will have to successfully pass multiple-choice questions at the end of each theory module. In addition to this you will also have to pass the following practical assessments:

  • Practice experiences and tasks x 5 – these shorter practical exercises are designed to help you to build up your practical skills by putting some of the theory you have learnt into practice. You will need to arrange for someone to video you carrying out these exercises. You will then need to submit your video to us for assessment.
  • Work order video assessments x 3 for each unit – these longer tasks involve performing timber pest inspections and management jobs (real or simulated) on a minimum of three different sites. You will need to arrange for someone to video you carrying out the jobs and you will need to submit your videos to us for assessment. You will also need to submit the associated job paperwork.
  • Site assessments x 7 for each unit – these tasks will need to be done under the supervision of your workplace trainer. You will need to perform seven timber pest inspections and seven timber pest management jobs (actual jobs, not simulations) on a minimum of seven different sites. Unlike the work order assessments, the site assessments do not need to be videoed. Instead, your supervisor will complete a site assessment checklist for each job, and this will need to be submitted to Work Ready Training, together with photographs of you carrying out the job. You will also need to submit the job paperwork.

Q. Who can be my workplace supervisor?

A workplace supervisor is an essential part of this timber pest course. You cannot complete the course without one. A work colleague can be a workplace supervisor if they have a current pest management licence and have a minimum of two years of experience in the work being supervised. They must also have passed the following two units of competency themselves (or the equivalent):

  • Inspect for and report on timber pests.
  • Control timber pests.

Q. Why do I need to do a Language, Literacy and Numeracy (LLN) test?

An LLN is a free, short test that checks that you have the necessary level of English and maths to complete the course. As part of your job as a pest controller, you must read pesticide product labels and mix and apply pesticides. It is extremely important that your English and numeracy is of a sufficient standard to do this competently and safely.

Q. Where can I do an LLN test?

  1. Email or call us on 1800 842 100 (our training helpline is open from 08.30 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 20 minutes).
  4. We will confirm your results.
  5. Once you have passed the LLN test, you will be able to enrol on a course.

Q. 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 LLN test, you will need to do an LLN course with an external provider, before you can enrol.

Q. What is a USI and how do I get one?

You need a USI (Unique Student Identifier) to enrol on this course and to receive your qualification or statement of attainment at the end of the 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.

Q. What is an RTO?

An RTO, or Registered Training Organisation, is a training organisation that is registered by a State or Territory recognition authority to issue Australian Qualifications Framework qualifications and statements of attainment.

Q. Is Work Ready Training an RTO?

No, Work Ready Training is not an RTO. We work with RTOs, developing content for them and providing the day-to-day running of their online courses.

Q. Is the full Certificate III in Urban Pest Management available through WRT?

No, not at the moment.
