Since 2015, anyone buying a pesticide authorised for professional use must obey a key legal requirement. The law demands that the pesticide will be used either by the holder of a relevant certificate, or by a person working under the direct supervision of someone who holds one.
This course has been developed in direct response to that legal requirement for pesticide use. You will earn a recognised qualification that reflects the national standards for the type of role you perform.
