The industry is backed and supported by each of the State Governments throughout Australia with a Technician Licensing System that protects both consumers from unsafe practices and the industry from unlicensed and inexperienced operators. As a result the qualification and licence is a valuable asset to possess.
Industry training and assessment of individuals is conducted primarily via the TAFE system with a number of independent Registered Training Organisations (RTO’s) delivering specific training and competency assessment needs. In addition to national training competency certificates, these nationally recognised courses are based on a national competency training program and form Certificate III & IV in Asset Management.
The industry has a number of specific Codes of Practice and Australian Standards that are used to both promote and deliver high levels of service and value for consumers, further supporting the professional status of this industry.
Pest Management qualifications and experience are recognised nationally and employment opportunities exist in several industries. These range from remote mining camps, to health care and hospitality industries, along with almost every domestic home being susceptible to the need for the services of a professional pest controller periodically.
Rates of pay, salary and earning potential can be attractive compared with other service industry careers, and with the inclusion of take home service vehicles, uniforms and paid overtime, the career can be both personally and financially rewarding.
Those ideally suited to this industry possess a "can do" attitude, with a high emphasis on customer service and communication whilst mostly working solo on a number of work sites throughout the day. As there is consistent interaction with people tolerance, diversity and persistence are also key attributes.
