Termite & Timber Pest Management Course
Getting your Pest
QLD is the only state in Australia that requires inspectors to hold a Pest Management Technician License before they can legally inspect on pests. If you are intending on carrying out inspections in QLD you will need to complete both this timber pest management course, as well as the general pest management course. After completion, submit your Statement of Attainment from both courses to QLD Health, who will issue your licence. Then, get your ‘Termite Management – Chemical’ licence added to your builders licence via the QBCC.
All other states do not require a licence to start inspecting on pests.
