Application

This unit specifies the skills and knowledge required to install termite management systems to manage subterranean termites in premises at the pre-construction stage. It includes assessing methods of construction of different premises as well as applying techniques required to prevent termites gaining concealed access to a completed construction. The unit requires selecting equipment, materials and methods suitable to the type of termite management system and construction.

A person working at this level would be expected to take responsibility for organising and completing tasks assigned to them without close supervision.

This unit forms part of the licensing requirements for people engaged in pest management in some states and territories, and licensing is required to install termite management systems that are impregnated with chemicals. For further information, check with the relevant regulatory authority.
