As well as our normal range of pesticides courses for certification purposes, we also offer a range of updating courses in pesticides application.  These courses may help with keeping you updated with the significant changes that have occurred in the pesticides industry during the last few years. These changes have been with the amount of new legislation that may well affect you as well as updates in the equipment and the pesticides used. If required a pesticide course can be used for NRoSO (National Register of Sprayer Operators) or BASIS CPD points, please ask for details.


Courses are held on a number of different sites dependant on demand. They may also be held on your own site if required and each pesticide course can be tailored to your own needs if required. Enquiries


Many of the trainers we use have been involved in pesticides training and certification at least since the NPTC units have been offered and most are Members of the BASIS Professional Register.
