Qualification overview

With New Zealand gearing up to become predator-free by 2050, landowners are facing a massive shortage of trained pest control operators and this programme will gear you up with the base skills and tools to get you started. You’ll learn trapping and poisoning techniques for controlling rats, rabbits, stoats and ferrets – some of our most destructive animal pests, as well as methods for controlling pest plants. With a mix of theory and hands-on learning, you’ll also cover topics such as animal physiology.
