PESTICIDES TRAINING COURSES
Why do I need training?
Quite simply it is a legal requirement to be competent in the storage and use of pesticides in the work place. It is also a legal requirement to hold a Certificate of Competence covering the activities you or your staff engage in. Pesticides are very widely used in the Land Based Industries but they are potentially harmful substances both to humans, animals and the environment. It is therefore essential that they are handled, stored and applied by people who are suitably trained and qualified.
What courses are available?
Courses are available to cover the storage and preparation of pesticides for use and will take into account both health & safety issues as well as environmental issues.
Other courses will cover the sfae use of the particular applicator that is in use. It may be the case that you will need more than one for instance if you are using hand held and vehicle mounted applicators.
The range of pesticide courses are designed by experts and will help you to understand:
WHO ARE THE COURSES FOR?
The courses are suitable for anyone who is using or who intends to use pesticides in the workplace. This applies to the self employed AND to products purchased from the garden centre which are intended for amateur use.
In most cases persons handling, storing or applying pesticides must also hold a current Certificate of Competence. NPC Training can assist with applying for Assessments through a local Test Centre but this must be independent of the training.
All courses are delivered by Lantra Awards Instructors and have been approved by Lantra Awards. Certificates of attendance are provided to all delegates.
NPC Training can arrange the full range of pesticides courses with the most popular being:
Basic training (foundation module plus one applicator module) is of three days duration and is followed a short time afterwards by a City & Guilds NPTC assessments leading to a Certificate of Competence. Further training can be arranged to cover other units if required.
