If you use chemicals such as herbicides, insecticides, fungicides, bactericides, baits, lures and rodenticides as part of your work, you are required by NSW legislation to hold a current Chemical Users certificate.
In this course, you will cover the skills and knowledge required to prepare and apply chemicals for the control of pests, use general application equipment, and how to safely transport, handle and store liquid and dry chemical formulations.
You will also learn about the correct disposal, selection and use of personal protective equipment (PPE), workplace safety procedures and legislative, regulatory and environmental requirements.
Upon successful completion of assessment task(s) students will be awarded a Statement of Attainment for units: AHCCHM307 Prepare and apply chemicals to control pest, weeds and diseases and AHCCHM304 Transport and store chemicals.
Certificates are valid for 5 years. Refreshers only attend the second day of the Full course and must have a current Chemical Users certificate.
If you are completing Chemical Users for the first time or your previous certificate has expired, you will be required to complete this two-day Chemical Users FULL course.
