This is a compulsory unit which covers the legislation relevant to pesticides application. It includes handling, storage, transportation and interpretation of product labels. This unit needs to be achieved as a pre-requisite for all other units.
Who needs to do this course?
Anyone who uses a professional pesticide product in the course of their business or employment may not use that pesticide or give instruction to others on their use unless they have received adequate instruction, training and guidance in their correct use.
In addition users of pesticides must hold a Certificate of Competence if using a pesticide if they:
were born after 31 December 1964; or
are providing a commercial service e.g contactors or anyone spraying on land that is not his or her employers.
Anyone who is required to hold a Certificate of Competence can only use pesticides without a Certificate if they are directly supervised by someone who does hold a certificate.
