Project: Urban Pest Management


Stage 1
SummaryComponents

On behalf of the Property Services IRC, Artibus Innovation is reviewing and updating the following training package components:

  • 2 qualifications:
    • CPP30115 Certificate III in Urban Pest Management
    • CPPXXXXX Certificate IV in Urban Pest Management
  • 15 units of competency.

The Property Services IRC is updating the Urban Pest Management components in the CPP training package to address the emerging specialisation of pest control functions and advise on pest strategies, particularly in high risk, commercial and health settings.

The current qualification provides a generalist pathway that does not reflect the emerging specialisation within the pest control function and does not describe the skills required to provide advice on pest strategies, particularly in high risk, commercial and health settings. The package lacks a higher-level qualification to provide the skills for the provision of pest strategy advice in complex and high-risk areas and in leadership of pest control teams.

Industry has ongoing concerns with graduate quality and duration of training and is supportive of a review of performance evidence to strengthen graduate employability. Artibus Innovation will examine content and structure of the Certificate III to better align packaging with vocational outcomes in line with industry expectations.

Consideration will be given to the introduction of a Certificate IV to align with the functions of a pest manager who lead pest teams and provide complex advice on pest management strategies.

Consumers are influencing how the pest control industry operates, with increased demand for more environmentally friendly and less toxic chemicals and processes. This is resulting in more effective processes being developed and different chemicals being used that improve pest control outcomes.

A Technical Advisory Group (TAG) is being established to provide key input on the:

  • suitability of packaging of the Certificate III qualification
  • the requirement for the addition of a Certificate IV qualification
  • unit relevancy and content.
