Pesticide and Agronomy Training Courses
Safe Use of Pesticide
In order to legally apply professional pesticides you must have a certificate of competence. Firstly you need to achieve The Safe Use of Pesticides (PA1), the foundation module and with our focused training we can help you do this.
You can complete The Safe Use of Pesticide PA1 in one day starting at 8:30 with the training and then whilst its all still fresh in your mind around 14:30 moving on to the online assessment after that you need to decide which application module is right for you.
A popular choice is application by hand held applicator such as a knapsack or back pack sprayer as they are sometimes known and this is often taken at the same time as the Safe Use of Pesticides (PA1). The PA6 is a one day training course with a 1.5hr assessment arranged for a separate day within 7 days of attending the training.
A great qualification to achieve in order to grow your career and one we highly recommend is the BASIS Certificate in Crop Protection Commercial Horticulture this has been a tremendous success and we are now running our 6th course led by Debbie Wedge.
As you know Horticulture has many areas of specialism and BASIS training brings together a vast amount of knowledge not only through the course but also the huge range of expertise from the delegates.
If you would like to learn more why not give us a call to discuss the training.
