About the course
This course is delivered in a practical working environment with our AusChem Training Victoria accredited trainers, and is a requirement for those seeking agricultural chemical user registration. The course is endorsed as suitable for commercial herbicide/pesticide applicator training. Participants who successfully meet the requirements of the course are issued with a Farm Chemical Users Certificate (which is valid for 5 years) and are eligible to apply for the Agricultural Chemical Users Permit (ACUP).
The Farm Chemical Users Refresher course enables users of AgVet Chemicals to keep up to date with changes in chemical use, new legislation and to have a reminder about safety and best practice. This course is required to retain registration in some industry QA programs, and is best suited to general chemical users.
