CRRU will support delivery of CPD by producing a learning resource that will be made available to Awarding Organisations, for dissemination via their established routes to users. The learning resource will also become available on the CRRU website, so that rodenticide users outside of established CPD schemes can consult it and maintain their knowledge.
