Shooters on course for bird control

Airgun shooters are being offered a new training course in the wake of the recent changes to the general licences

A leading UK pest control supply company is opening its training courses to a wider audience after many professionals were left confused following the changes to the general licences surrounding the control of pest birds.

The training courses offered by Killgerm Chemicals – which have been running for a number of years – had previously been aimed at professional pest control companies, but are now being made available to people outside of the industry.

The main interest to Airgun Shooter readers will be the Safe Use of Air Weapons for Pest Control course. This one-day course teaches shooters pest control management, how to identify different bird species, and most importantly, covers the new bird licences and how to apply for them.

The safe handling and shooting of air rifles is also included, along with a practical session being carried out at a shooting range with state-of-the-art equipment and expert tuition and guidance.

The courses take place on a regular basis at various locations across the UK, including Kirkcaldy, Kibworth and Bristol. The Safe Use of Air Weapons for Pest Control training course costs £175 + VAT, and this cost includes lunch and refreshments.
