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.
