Pest Management Training Assessment Methods

To gain your certification and become a Pest Management Controller you need to complete training with an RTO specialising in Pest Management Training and Assessment.

Safeguard Pest Management Training and Assessment will assess you at the end of the course to ensure you have the knowledge and skills required to be certified and operate as a Pest Controller. More importantly, we will give you an opportunity to further your professional development by providing you with the education you need.


To receive a Certificate and Statement of Attainment candidates will have completed all the requirements of the course and passed the assessment. 

The three steps to be assessed as competent in a unit are:


Full Assessment

You will be assessed on-the-job and will need to provide proof of competency.

Recognition of Current Competency (RCC)


Your current qualifications and work examples will be used in this process. You will be required to show documented evidence, experience, and samples of your work. You will be assessed on your documentation and other methods such as face-to-face questions.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

You can apply for RPL from completed studies with other institutions as long as it is at the same level which will provide credit for learning and assessments. You will still need an on-site assessment if you haven't already been assessed for practical skills. 

This means that you may already be competent but still need to be assessed by providing evidence to support your claim.


Examples of supporting documentation and evidence:

  • Any certificates of attendance at courses from TAFE, Smart Train or ChemCert that relate to pest management

  • Trade certificates in fields such as horticulture 

  • Site inspection reports you have completed demonstrating the problem, management of the pest problem, pesticides etc.

  • Testimonials from clients and supervisors documenting how you resolved and managed the problem

  • Evidence of professional development conferences, seminars or other meetings relating to pest management


If you have not done any previous training or attended pest management conferences or workshops then please contact us to discuss your options.
