Chemical user training

Training is recommended for users of rural chemical to develop competency in their use.

When using some chemical groups training is required by the Department of Health SA.

Persons using Schedule 7 poisons (labelled as Dangerous Poison) are required to hold a valid statement of attainment issued by a training organisation registered by the Australian Skills Quality Authority for the units of competence AHCCHM303 (Prepare and Apply Chemicals) and AHCCHM304 (Transport and store chemicals). Persons spraying specified Group I herbicides are required to hold a statement of attainment for AHCCHM303 (Prepare and Apply Chemicals).
