BPCA Registered | Individual recognition scheme for skills, qualifications and CPD

Join the CPD scheme specifically designed for pest professionals

In the past, BPCA existed solely to support companies working in pest management.

After lots of feedback from members, we now recognise the individual contributions of staff members. We do this through our CPD scheme, BPCA Registered.

BPCA Registered recognises and records the qualifications and skills you earn throughout your career.

BPCA Registered The British Pest Control Association individual recognition scheme for skills qualifications and CPD

By being a part of BPCA Registered you’ll get a BPCA Registered card. The card proves your commitment to professionalism and continued development to your clients.

Having our technicians recognised as BPCA Registered Technicians is great motivation for them and, as the scheme develops, will encourage our team to achieve higher qualifications. I think the ID card will also give our customers added assurance that they are in safe hands.

Continuing professional development (CPD) your way

Your CPD isn’t limited to formal training and attending events or seminars. Much of a technician’s development comes from experience learned on the job.

BPCA Registered recognises unstructured learning. This means that whether it’s informal training in the field, reading a magazine or watching a seminar on-demand, you can record this activity in your CPD diary.

Examples of acceptable CPD
Formal on-the-job training Informal on-the-job training
Classroom training Mentoring and coaching 
Remote online training Technical videos 
Online learning Technical advice and support 
Webinars Technical publications and research 
Online CPD Quizzes Toolbox talks 
Forums Podcasts
Event seminars  

The BPCA Registered website allows you (or your employer) to record unstructured CPD points...

CPD category split

No matter which category of BPCA Registered you’re in, you’ll need to register at least 20 CPD points covering a variety of areas every year.

For BPCA membership criteria, you must complete your 20 CPD points for your employer to stay a BPCA member.
