Pesticides Training PA1 and PA6


About the Course

If your job involves applying pesticides in a commercial role then you are legally required by the Plant Protection Products (Sustainable Use) Regulations (2012) to take the PA1 qualification.

The new PA6 qualification is designed specifically for those who wish to apply pesticides using various types of handheld applicators and we offer two options within this course – application of pesticides on land (PA6A) and application of pesticides near water (PA6AW). We can also deal with requests for stem injection (PA6INJ) and pesticides plugs (PA6PP) – please speak to us if you require either of these.

  • 06-07 April 2020, PA6 assessment 8 or 9 April 2020
  • 04-05 May 2020, PA6 assessment 6 or 7 May 2020

  • You will need to carry out calculations and measurements to ensure the correct pesticide flow-rates and you might like to bring a calculator – although most mobile phones have decent calculators on them these days!
