22275VIC Minimising Risks in the Use of 1080 Pest Animal Bait Products for Vertebrate Pest Control course 

Sodium fluoroacetate, commonly known as 1080, is used to control a variety of vertebrate pests in Victoria, such as rabbits, foxes, wild dogs and feral pigs.

1080 is a Schedule 7 (Dangerous Poison) and as such is currently restricted to those who hold a valid Agricultural Chemical User Permit (ACUP), Pest Control Licence (PCL), Pilot Licence (PCRL) or a Commercial Operator Licence with a vermin destroyer endorsement (COL), and complete specific training in order to obtain a 1080-endorsement to their licences.

1080 bait products are only one element of an integrated pest animal management strategy.

For more information about the 1080 endorsement on the ACUP, please check the Agriculture Victoria website.

Having completed ChemCert's online training I found it to be an in depth and informative course with great links and an easy one click to industry information. Completing this online was made easier with the ability to chat online with other students or the course assessor. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending ChemCert's online training. I had my digital Statement of attainment within a day and hard copy within three days of course completion Andrew AQF3 - Online Course
