Want to gain industry standard training in farm chemical use?
The City of Whittlesea is subsidising the cost for rural residents to update or become accredited farm chemical users. The course and permit usually costs around $250 but is available here, for just $50.
In this two-day course join a network of local rural landowners and learn about:
- Storage and handling
- Pest identification
- Modes of action
- Label interpretation
- Issues associated with chemical use
- Formulation types
- Weed and pest control application
- Animal health
- Transport and disposal
- Preparation and clean up procedures
- Recording procedures
By the completion of this course you will have the required Industry Quality Assurance Programs Training, necessary when applying for the Victorian Agriculture Chemical Users Permit (an ACUP is required for users of Schedule 7 and other Restricted Use Chemical Products).
Places are limited, so make sure to register via Eventbrite today!
Terms & Conditions: This course is only available to City of Whittlesea residents. Attendees may be asked to provide proof of residency upon entry.
