Pest control company opens new training facility

Knaresborough-based business Pelsis has opened a training facility for the UK’s pest controllers.

The Pelsis Academy is at the head office site and has been designed to provide the company’s pest control customers with a vibrant environment to develop their pest control knowledge and skills.

The official opening was led by the Group’s CEO, Peter Mangion, who said: “Our markets are constantly changing and evolving, so our need to invest in learning and development has never been greater. At Pelsis, we have placed learning and development at the heart of what we do, developing The Pelsis Academy as a fun place to learn, in order to benefit our industry and our colleagues.”

The company worked with a local architect to create a bright, innovative space to encourage learning. Alongside the well equipped training rooms, the unique centrepiece of the Academy is a two-story house where pest controllers can put their skills to the test, looking for indicators of pest activity, surveying, monitoring and recommending treatments supported by a leading technical training team.

The Pelsis Academy was jointly opened by the Chairmen of the UK’s two pest control industry associations, the BPCA (British Pest Control Association) and NPTA (National Pest Technicians Association).
