For health and safety reasons during the COVID-19 pandemic, the format of fire ant general awareness and pest management training has changed. For the immediate future, all training will be delivered via online video conferencing using MS Teams.

Fire ant general awareness training

These training sessions are designed for businesses, government bodies, contractors and other suppliers working within the fire ant biosecurity zones and dealing with fire ant carriers.

Sessions include:

  • Fire ant identification and reporting
  • Impacts of fire ants
  • The fire ant eradication program, and
  • The fire ant biosecurity zones and movement controls.

Do you have more than 25 people that need to be trained?
Training sessions can be provided at your place of business if you have 25 people or more to attend. To discuss this option with a trainer, please complete a request form.


Fire ant pest management training

These advanced training sessions are designed to enable pest managers and contractors to treat fire ant nests. They begin with the general awareness training component (included in all fire ant pest management training) and then build on that base knowledge to cover industry specific information, including:

  • How the treatment works
  • Treatment reporting requirements
  • Practical treatment demonstration.
