Termite & Timber Pest Management Course

Our Termite and Timber Pest Management course covers two units (8 & 10) from the Certificate III in Urban Pest Management CPP30119. It is designed to provide you with the knowledge and skills to be a competent Termite and Timber Pest Manager.

We recommend you complete the General Pest Management course first, however this is not a requirement in most states.

After completing all your training and assessment, you will receive a Statement of Attainment which can then be submitted to your government licensing office to receive your Pest Management Licence. Please contact us for more information.

To achieve the requirements for Termite & Timber Pest licensing, you will need the following units:

CPPUPM3008 (Unit 8) Inspect for and report on timber pests

CPPPUM3010 (Unit 10) Control timber pests
