RSPH Level 3 gains traction

Killgerm Training are delighted to announce a significant achievement after one of their candidates gained RSPH Level 3 Award in Pest Management. Gareth Scatchard joins the small, but elite, group of pest professionals who hold Level 3 and becomes the first in the UK to have gained this recently restructured qualification.

Gareth who is Environmental Services Team Leader at Sheffield City Council said of his fantastic achievement, “I am over the moon to receive my certificate today. Researching for my exam and assignments has considerably bolstered my knowledge and allowed me to demonstrate my practical Pest Control skills.”

Mark Butler from Killgerm commented, “We are all delighted for Gareth and his achievement.  This is the “Gold Standard” industry qualification and along with RSPH Level 2, provides a clear qualification pathway for our industry.  It allows highly-skilled pest professionals, like Gareth, to move beyond the benchmark Level 2.  Gareth is the first to achieve the re-introduced qualification and he follows on from the previous Level 3 Pest Management holders we have successfully mentored. In an era where professionalism should be promoted, this is another demonstration of Killgerm’s ability to innovate and offer valuable options to the industry.”

Richard Burton, Director of Qualifications at RSPH said, “This is a tremendous achievement by Gareth and well-deserved. The RSPH Level 3 Award in Pest Management always creates a great deal of interest at trade shows so I am confident that Gareth’s award will be the first of many.”

RSPH Level 3 Award is an externally accredited qualification from The Royal Society for Public Health and is aimed at experienced pest control operators who wish to move beyond Level 2. It consists of 2 components; a written exam and a portfolio of 4 assignments.
