PCO Supervisors

PREP PCO Supervisors - Expression of Interest

For the first time since SARM took over the administration of PREP in 2010, the Provincial Rat Eradication (PREP) Board would like to extend an opportunity to all active, licensed Pest Control Officers who are members of the Saskatchewan Pest Control Officers Association (SPCOA) and who may be interested in becoming one of the six Regional Pest Control Supervisors, one for each of the SARM Divisions.

The job of the PCO Supervisors is instrumental in the success of PREP.  Communication and consistency in shared knowledge has proven a key component in the effectiveness of this program. Within each division, PCO Supervisors are asked to provide services such as assisting to manage major outbreaks in the field, ensure consistency in inspection procedures and baiting processes, assist as needed in bringing rat outbreaks under control and meeting with municipal councils, for technical purposes, when requested. 

Applicants must hold a valid Structural Pest Control Licence to be considered for these positions. Applications can be found here and must be received in the SARM office by January 31, 2017.
