CRRU-IASIS One-Day Course for Pest Control Technicians

Irish Rodent Pest Control Technicians now have the opportunity to become accredited as Wildlife Aware Accredited individuals who can operate to the highest practical standards to achieve effective pest control with minimum adverse effects on wildlife and the wider environment.

Rodent control, using second generation rodenticides (SGARs), has been shown in recent research to impact on Irish birds of prey. We now know that over 80% of our Barn Owls have detectible levels of rodenticides in their bodies. It is thus essential that pest control technicians have an understanding of the routes of exposure of wildlife to rodenticides and that they become aware of the techniques that minimise wildlife exposure.

Organisations that employ rodent pest control technicians should ensure that they operate to the highest standards to achieve effective pest control with minimum adverse effects on the environment and on wildlife.

CRRU-IASIS Wildlife Aware Courses and accreditation are now available to professional rodent pest control technicians. These courses will also be of interest to Local Authority pest control operatives as well as Quality Assurance Scheme Auditors and Inspectors.

Accreditation will provide evidence that the organisations which employ Wildlife Aware accredited technicians will operate to the highest practical standards to achieve effective rodent control with minimum adverse effects on wildlife and the wider environment.
