Pesticides PA6 – NPTC

August 21


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 hand-held applicators with a hydraulic nozzle as part of their work.

The finer details

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

We’ll run through pesticide legislation and the key safety issues.

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

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

Course sessions:

  • Basics of spray application
  • Hygiene and personal protective equipment
  • The working principles of a knapsack
  • Preparation of the applicator for work
  • Nozzles
  • Calibrating a knapsack
  • Mixing, filling and site work
  • Calibration – concentration method
  • Decontamination, tank washing, and storage.

To be eligible, you must have already 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
