Pesticides PA2 – NPTC

August 20


Pesticides are widely used across many land-based industries.

But they can be potentially harmful substances.

It’s essential they are handled, applied and stored correctly.

Our course will teach you to do just that.

It’s designed for anyone who uses vehicle mounted/trailer boom spraying equipment (hydraulic nozzle) as part of their work.

The finer details

Our course is a balanced mix of theory and practical work.

You’ll be taught the basics of what the machine is and what it can do.

Field work will be followed by a rundown of decontamination and disposal techniques.

Course sessions:

  • Basics of spray application
  • The working principles of a hydraulic sprayer
  • Preparation of machinery for work
  • Calibration in practice
  • Mixing and filling/essential PPE
  • Field work
  • Sprayer decontamination, disposal of washings and machine storage.

Worth noting: To attend this course you must be able to proficiently drive the particular vehicle(s) used during training.

You also should have attended our Safe Use of Pesticides course.

This is a one days training course and you will have a 3 hour practical assessment on another day
