What is


Competency In Pest Management Course

Competency is being able to demonstrate that you have the specific knowledge and skills required to perform the tasks related to the “Units of Competency” you have just studied.

You can demonstrate your knowledge and skills by –

Performing a task under observation

Providing documentary evidence such as samples of paperwork

By interview

Or numerous other methods

This manner of assessment demonstrates your knowledge and your ability to carry out a specific task safely and effectively without having to sit a traditional memory test.

Following assessment you will either be recognised as “competent” in each specific unit, or “not yet competent”. Please know you cannot fail with us. If you have not yet fully grasped the knowledge and skills required to complete a unit, we will simply advise you to engage in further practise and / or training, reassessing you at a later date - generally you do not need to be completely reassessed.
