ChemCert Training meets all requirements of Reef Regulation legislation for Queensland

Supplier News

ChemCert Training Queensland  provide competency based training and assessment on pesticide usage that includes the three competencies required by the new Reef Regulation legislation and the relative use of regulated herbicides. These regulations are: RTC3401A-Control Weeds; RTC3704A-Prepare and apply chemicals and RTC3705A-Transport handle and store chemicals.

ChemCert Training Queensland chemical usage safety training is delivered using new learning guides containing the latest information on risk management of pesticide application, nozzle selection, OHS requirements, weed control and record keeping.

The competency based training and assessment program is delivered by ChemCert Training Queensland accredited trainers and assessors, located throughout Queensland, who have extensive crop and or animal production experience. 

All trainers and assessors are required to ensure that the training delivery includes examples of interest to local land holders and managers and meet the requirements for environmentally safe and effective pesticide use.

Executive Director of ChemCert Training Queensland, Mr Jamie Cupples said "The ChemCert Technical Advisory Group strives to maintain quality control and continuous improvement of the program and its participants. Trainers and assessors are regularly required to attend Professional Development workshops to maintain their accreditation. During these workshops trainers and assessors are kept informed of the latest developments in technology, government regulations, and registration requirements."

Currently ChemCert Training Queensland is making a special effort to provide the training and assessment, in relation to pesticide usage, required by the sugar and grazing industries to comply with the recently introduced Reef Regulations.

ChemCert Training Queensland is working with regional organizations such as Canegrowers and BSES to see that producers get the training and accreditation they require in order to use pesticides in a way that reduces risks to themselves and agricultural products.

ChemCert Training Queensland is also interested in recognizing the skills and achievements producers may already have in relation to the individual elements of the three competencies, providing recognition of prior learning, and/or additional training and assessment where required.
