Face To Face Study
Fully accredited training can be provided at locations across NSW, or as a home based study.
Chemical User Accreditation to a minimum AQTF Level 2 is mandatory for most commercial users of agricultural and veterinary chemicals in NSW. This requirement was phased in from 2003 to 2005 when it was enforced as part of the Pesticides Act 1999. Accreditations are valid for a 5 year period and as a result users must accredit every 5 years to remain current. The requirement in NSW applies to the commercial use of chemicals not the purchase. (Some exceptions apply)
This training is available Australia wide, please contact us for details.

On successful completion of assessments participants will be issued both a Statement of Attainment and a Chem Qual Accreditation card. This qualification is recognized nationally and meets your legal requirements for training and is valid for 5 years.
The Statement of Attainment covers the following competencies:
- AHCCHM101 Follow basic chemical safety rules
- AHCCHM201 Apply chemicals under supervision
