Overview in brief

Since 2015, anyone buying a pesticide authorised for professional use must obey a key legal requirement.

The law demands that the pesticide will be used either by the holder of a relevant certificate, or by a person working under the direct supervision of someone who holds one.

That's where our qualification comes in.

It's been developed in direct response to that legal requirement for pesticide use.

You'll earn a recognised qualification that reflects the national standards for the type of role you perform.
