Pest Inspection Course
Get licenced and start
inspecting!

Each state and territory in Australia have different requirements for pest licenses. But don’t worry – we’ll steer you in the right direction.
If you think it would easier to just do building inspections without inspecting on pests, then you could be missing out on potential cash.
Most property buyers request both a building and pest inspection on their new property, so it’s worth being the inspector they need for both!
Don’t lose half your earnings to pay the pest inspector, when you can study the course online and receive your own licence!
