22516VIC - Course in Minimising Risks in the Use of 1080 & PAPP Bait Products for Vertebrate Pest Control
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.
The Course in Minimising Risks in the Use of 1080 & PAPP Bait Products for Vertebrate Pest Control is designed to enable participants to understand the requirements for purchasing and using 1080 and PAPP pest animal bait products. It focuses on identifying and managing the risks associated with the use of 1080 and PAPP pest animal bait products.
Successful completion of the ChemCert AQF3 course and 22516VIC course allows participants to apply to the Agriculture Victoria for an Agricultural Chemical Users Permit (ACUP) with a 1080 endorsement.
For more information about the 1080 endorsement on the ACUP, please check the Agriculture Victoria website.
