Industry Based Non-Profit Organisation
ChemCert is an industry based non-profit organisation which was established in 1999. As the peak accreditation body it works with all industry sectors throughout Australia for the training, up-skilling and industry accreditation for users of Agricultural and Veterinary (AgVet) chemicals.
The ChemCert Agricultural and Veterinary Chemical Training Program was developed by industry members as a direct result of the wider community’s concern over the potential adverse consequences of the use of farm chemicals, the need to protect the health and safety of rural workers, ensure the security of food and fibre production and maintain the viability of our domestic and export products.
Diverse Industry Sectors
ChemCert courses and resources have been enthusiastically embraced by a wide range of agricultural and veterinary chemical (herbicide and pesticide) users including farmers, graziers, horticulturists, viticulturists, forestry workers, amenity workers, golf course attendants, community organisations, volunteers and employees of local governments.
The success of the ChemCert Chemical Training Program is due to the ongoing commitment and input from industry bodies, dedicated primary producers and farm chemical users from across Australia.
