Course fee applies. Call us for details. This course is designed for personnel who are required to apply chemicals under supervision using small powered or hand-held equipment. This unit contributes to a number of Certificate II level qualifications.
Compulsory pesticides training: you must also maintain your competency. Pesticides can be dangerous if incorrectly applied or managed. Training in their correct use helps prevent mistakes being made and enables those who use pesticides in the course of their work to minimise the risk to themselves, their families, the community, trade and the environment.
This unit of competency (AHCCHM201 – Apply chemicals under supervision) describes the skills and knowledge required to apply chemicals using workplace specific application equipment under supervision. All work must be carried out to comply with workplace procedures, work health and safety and pesticide legislation and codes. This unit applies to individuals who undertake defined routine activities alongside a supervisor in most situations. They exercise limited autonomy within established and well known parameters and identify and seek help with simple problems. The skills and knowledge described in this unit underpin a broad range of activities applicable to various job roles at various levels.
