Lantra Awards Level 2 Award in the Safe Use of Pesticides is launching this month!

Having received Ofqual accreditation, Lantra Awards will be launching the Lantra Awards Level 2 Award in the Safe Use of Pesticides – 601/5977/7 later this month.

The qualification covers the knowledge and skills required to work with, and apply, pesticides. If your job involves applying pesticides in a commercial role then you are legally required by the Chemicals Regulation Directorate (CRD) (Control of Pesticides Regulations 1986) (as amended) to take this, or an equivalent qualification.

The stand alone qualification offers progression towards further training and qualifications in the use of Boom Sprayer, Hand Held and Granular application equipment.

This is a single unit qualification (Principles of the Safe Use and Application of Pesticides) worth 3 credits.

Lantra Awards also has qualifications in development to cover the practical use of Boom Sprayer, Hand Held and Granular application equipment. It is anticipated that these qualifications will be ready for launch in June this year.

Please get in touch for more information.
