Pesticide Training Notes

NPTC_City_Guilds_TrainingWho better to train you in the safe use of pesticides than an organisation that is doing what you will be trained to do, each day of the year?

Pesticide training courses are a bit rare under Covid restrictions so why not learn the subject matter in the safety of your home?

Weed Free are able to provide formal training and assessments for Food and Environment Protection Act Certificates of Competence in the Safe use of Pesticides. Each year, we train many Greenkeepers and Sports Turf Managers and Local Authority Staff.We were asked multi-times to provide training one to one to small business owners and as a result came up with the the self study pesticide course concept to support our on site training for larger companies and organisations.

You can purchase self-learn NPTC / City & Guilds training modules and other publications here.

Written and presented by the Weed Free Team, it is much cheaper than attending a formal training course run by us and all you need to do is to register with NPTC / City & Guilds and then arrange to be Assessed in each Module.  See the finer details in the individual modules to learn more.  We will ghold your hand and guide you through the process if you cannot solve it yourself.  We are very user friendly!

Get the training notes, register with NPTC and C&G and then arrange to be assessed locally at your nearest Agricultural or Horticultural College.  Demand is high for these modules currently.  All in all, minimal days off work to be trained, now that can't be bad!
