Our Safe Use of Pesticides programme is ideal for anyone working with spray pesticides on holiday or residential parks.
It is both illegal to use controlled pesticides or to purchase them for use by someone for professional purposes that does not have an appropriate qualification. Both holiday and residential park operators fall within the scope of the Regulations and will need to comply with them.
There are a number of units within the use of pesticides qualifications, but only 2 will usually be required for use on parks:
- Pesticide Application (PA1): Safe Use of Pesticides NPTC Level 2 Award
- Pesticide Application (PA6): Hand Held Applicators NPTC Level 2 Award
The foundation (PA1) unit is mandatory and must be successfully completed before learners can progress to the recommended second unit (PA6). Both units are required to obtain the NPTC qualification which is recognised as demonstrating occupational competence and is the accepted licence to practice the use of pesticides in industry. The units can be taken separately or as a combined package.
