ChemCert Accreditation AQF3
AQF3 Chemical Accreditation course (also known as "Chemical Handling Certificate" or "Chemical ticket") focuses on upskilling chemical users on the industry’s best practice methods and national standards. Participants are provided with practical advice covering industry’s updates, local resistance and spraying issues to minimise chemical costs, limit spray drift and improve spraying outcomes.
The ChemCert AQF3 Accreditation includes the two units AHCCHM303 Prepare and Apply Chemicals and AHCCHM304 Transport and Store Chemicals.
It is nationally recognised for five years and enables the holder to legally use restricted chemicals unsupervised.
The aim of this course is to raise awareness of the potential hazards and risks associated with pesticide use and to provide practical information with regards to safe chemical handling and application. In addition this course introduces pesticide users to the principles of calibration. Participants will be expected to calibrate a piece of hand held equipment such as a knapsack, drench gun or injectable.
Topics covered include:
|Safe Transport & Storage||Determining weather conditions suitable for spraying|
|Understanding chemical application issues||Equipment calibration techniques|
|Knowledge to limit spray drift||Managing chemical residues|
|Risk assessments and hazard control forms||Self audit & compliance checklists|
|Integrated Pest Management||Record keeping requirements|
All students participating in Nationally Recognised Training in Australia must have a Unique Student Identifier (USI) number. Students who don’t provide their USI to ChemCert Training Group will not receive a qualification or statement of attainment until they provide one.
Please head to www.usi.gov.au to create your USI, and make sure you provide it to ChemCert Training Group using the enrolment form on the day of the course.
