ANEPROMA CALLS THE COURSE “INSPECTION TECHNICIAN, DETECTION AND TREATMENT FOR ACTING ON INNER CITIES ATTACKED BY TERMITES”
The National Association of companies of timber protection, ANEPROMA, It has been designed, coordinated and developed a specialization course in controlling subterranean termites, aimed at professionals in the sector of the protection of the wood, in response to the demands of the sector, following the adoption of the standard UNE 56418:2016.
The past 30 of December, the standard was published UNE 56418:2016 “Action Protocol in urban districts affected by attacks of subterranean termites”, by the Technical Committee for Standardization 56 “Wood and Cork”, that the Subcommittee is attached 4 “Wood protection”, in which ANEPROMA actively collaborates. This standard is to respond to a historical demand for the wood treatment sector, to regulate and normalize the actions to be developed in urban areas or buildings, the subterranean termite control.
This repellent agent, along with rot fungi, It may cause, in a relatively short time., the ruin of the buildings, through its silent and hidden action, so it is necessary to fight with all the means at our disposal your condition to the assets of the society. With the publication of the abovementioned standard, Spain approaches its regulatory framework to countries of high tradition in timber construction and care, as France, country that has abundant legislation developed to the effect, as well as a specific law for the prevention and fight against attacks by termites and other wood destroying agents.
The course “INSPECTION TECHNICIAN, DETECTION AND TREATMENT FOR ACTING ON INNER CITIES ATTACKED BY TERMITES” aims to train students for:
• Develop inspections aimed at the control of termites in urban
• Identify the different species of termites in Spain
• Develop actions of control against termites, Once it is full knowledge of its biology and special features
• Identify and assimilate, a personal and business level, the reference in the sector regulatory requirements (UNE-EN 16636:2015; UNE 56418:2016)
• Develop the professional activity of the subterranean termite control in urban areas in accordance with protocols established and accepted by the sector.
• Facilitate the knowledge and use of techniques and tools for the detection and monitoring of termes attacks underground.
In the words of Ramón Serra, President of ANEPROMA: “This standard is to cover a troubling regulatory gap in the sector; from our partnership, It brings together professionals from the sector preventive and curative of wood, some more of 100 years of experience in the conservation of this noble material, It has been working, together with other stakeholders in the field, to develop a text that regulates, somehow, the actions of the subterranean termite control, one of the xylophages which further damage, at the economic level, they generate year after year. For this reason, Once the approval in the respective normalization of standard bodies has been, ANEPROMA now promotes the transfer of knowledge and results to the business, as a way of increasing their professional training, to ensure that the principles and requirements contained in the standard will be extended to the entire sector with the greatest possible agility.”
ANEPROMA It represents and defends all of the protection of the wood sector, at the preventive level, How healing. The Association has been able to identify the needs of the sector (and its professionals), in areas of high specialization, as control treatments of termes and inspections in wooden structures. Proof of this are the numerous editions of the courses “BIOLOGY OF SUBTERRANEAN WOODWORM AND DRY WOOD” e “INTERVENTION IN WOODWORK”, training actions which have allowed closer to the professionals of the sector skills and knowledge not always accessible or contained in the topics of the courses required by the Royal Decree 830/2010 (Applicator and biocides TP8 technical manager″.
