Independent pest control register, BASIS PROMPT, has launched a new online tool that gives a stamp of assurance to registered pest controllers.
PROMPT Verified, which is easily accessed via the PROMPT website, enables the public to check the credentials of pest technicians and demonstrates the importance of regulation and Continuing Professional Development (CPD) within the pest control industry.
Greg Hopkinson, head of business development and marketing at BASIS PROMPT, says that the new service allows the public to search a list of PROMPT Registered pest technicians using their name, company or Register membership number.
“Only PROMPT Register members will appear on the list, confirming that the pest technician searched for is an accredited professional who has up-to-date CPD training,” says Greg.
He adds that to be a PROMPT Register member, pest controllers must be qualified or working towards qualifications, however, to be eligible to appear on the Verified list, they must also have achieved the required CPD points to maintain their status on the PROMPT Register.
“Those members who are signed up to the new service can use it to demonstrate the knowledge and expertise they have gained through accredited qualifications and CPD when tendering for work,” adds Greg.
The fact that PROMPT members are required to have up-to-date CPD to be on the Verified list, also helps to demonstrate the importance of continued learning within the pest control industry.
“Technicians may have gained qualifications, but the information they learnt as part of these can quickly become outdated given the fast pace of the industry, so CPD ensures they are aware of the latest products, legislation and strategies.
“The more members we have signed up to the list, the more effective PROMPT Verified will be at giving our members the recognition they deserve and ensuring their customers receive a high-quality service,” concludes Greg.
