PA1 Safe Handling and Application of Pesticides – Dates
Safe Handling and Application of Pesticides (PA1)
What is PA1?
The PA1 safe handling and application of pesticides is the first unit that you need to complete to start your spraying journey.
The PA1 is a one-day online blended learning course with a multiple-choice face-to-face exam. Which, when you have completed and passed you can progress onto one of the many application units. Such as PA6a handheld applicators (knapsack) or PA2a boom sprayers.
This is a foundation unit only it does NOT enable you to apply any pesticides. For that, you must ensure you have the relevant application unit(s) so you can legally apply pesticides as a professional user.
Our PA1 course is a blended online package, taught through fabulous videos and a detailed workbook.
However, do not worry we will talk you through everything you need to do. It is a simple and straightforward way to carry out your PA1 course.
It saves you:
- travelling time
