Pest Control Licence | Micropest Pty Ltd
My Name is Gerard from Micropest Pest Control Sydney and I first started in the pest control industry 21 years ago. I was 25 at the time and travelling around Australia and desperately needed a job. I happened to be in the City of Churches, Adelaide, at the time. I answered a job ad in the local paper for a pest control operator with a pest control licence. I didn't have a pest control licence but I went for a job interview anyway.
I was lucky because the Adelaide pest control company I went for the job interview with had no other applicants so I got the job without a pest control licence. One of the conditions of my employment was I had to get a pest control licence and work beside a 70 year old pest controller who was the number one trouble shooter for Flick Pest Control for many years. Back in those days to get a full pest control licence it took three years of practical experience with a fully qualified pest control operator and a lot of study at TAFE. Nowadays you can get a pest control licence within a month, or even shorter in some cases, including practical experience of only a week with a fully qualified pest controller who has been in the industry for two months.
