Standard Growsafe Course – Richmond
The objective of the GROWSAFE Standard programme is to recognise agrichemical users who are able to demonstrate competency in the use of agrichemicals within a specific sector, including adherence to the principles and contents of the New Zealand Standard, NZS8409 Management of Agrichemicals and sector guidelines. The GROWSAFE Standard certificate is awarded by NZAET to candidates that can provide evidence that they have reached the required level of knowledge and competency.
The Standard certificate is intended for those working independently with responsibility for a single site/property (PCBU) and may have responsibility for supervising/managing others. They are likely to be operating in a known set of circumstances e.g. one location, one crop and/or equipment type (or operating under the supervision of someone with an Advanced or RCA certificate).
Please ensure you or your staff member attends the correct course
