Structure of the safe use of biocides course
This one day course will look at a selection of elements and will involve a short exam at the end of the day in order to receive your PCA accredited certificate and to have your name added to the Professional Users of Biocides Register.
After the successful completion of the course and exam, all candidates that pass will be added to the Professional Users of Biocides Register for the Protection of Timber in Buildings. This register will provide a reference point for both suppliers and consumers who want to verify the professionalism of applicators, while also acting as a means by which professional users can differentiate themselves from companies that have committed to the letter of the product approval requirements.
