About this Event

Description

This course is for people who apply pesticides from a conventional boom sprayer. The hydraulic nozzle sprayer will be tractor mounted (please ask for details of quad bike mounted sprayer training)

This course will cover:

  • Safe driving practice
  • Preparation and maintenance of the sprayer
  • Fault finding
  • Calibration and post spraying procedures

You will need to bring: Calculator and writing materials to take your own course notes on the day. If available, please bring your PA1 training book/notes with you as well. Please wear comfortable clothing and all weather outer-wear suitable for a yard environment. Personal Protective Equipment required: Wellington boots. Feel free to bring your own gloves, overalls, full-face shield and respirator. Don’t worry if you don’t have this equipment available, you will be able to borrow this from the tutor on the day of the course.

Entry Requirements

You must have already passed the NPTC PA1 Safe Use of Pesticides Spraying Foundation (0216-49) qualification and you must be competent in Tractor driving/operation.

Assessment

This course leads to a City & Guilds Level 2 Award NPTC 021650 via a competency assessment carried out by the NPTC. Once you have completed the training course, you will be contacted by the NPTC to arrange a convenient time and location for your assessment (assessment is not carried out on the day of the course).

The practical assessment will include observation and oral questioning and will cover jug tests and calibration of the ground crop sprayer. If you are not experienced in using a ground crop sprayer, please use the time between the course training day and the assessment to gain a level of practical experience. Successful candidates will be awarded their certificate directly from the NPTC.

If you would like to discuss this further please contact the NPTC directly on 01603 731250.

NPTC - Disabilities and Access Arrangements

Please inform us immediately, if you have not already done so, of any disabilities that may disadvantage you in successful completion of your assessment; for example if you have dyslexia or English is not your first language, or any mild disability which may require you to have some assistance. Under guidance from C&G we are able to make access arrangements for some learners to demonstrate their competence under assessment, without changing the demands of that assessment. Examples of access arrangements include: readers, scribes, extra time, or modified assessment material. However, as Certificates of Competence are vocational qualifications, candidates must achieve all the required units to gain a full qualification, and the awarding body will not make adjustments to the required competence standards.

As an example, pesticide product labels detail essential information, and it is of paramount importance that a candidate is able to read and interpret this information to comply with legislative and operational requirements. If the candidate is unable to read and/or interpret a product label without assistance then they will not be deemed competent to practice, as if such a person were working without supervision in the workplace, there is the potential for serious incident to occur.

If you would like to discuss this further or make access arrangements for your assessment, then please contact NPTC directly on 01603 731250.
