This course is essential for all those involved in applying pesticides using a self-propelled, mounted or trailed horizontal boom sprayer fitted with hydraulic nozzles to apply pesticide to land. In the UK, anyone using a professional pesticide must either have a recognised specified certificate (previously known as a ‘Certificate of Competence’) or be working under the direct supervision, for the purposes of training, with someone who has such a certificate. Pa2a is the qualification that entitles the holder to use a self-propelled, mounted or trailed horizontal boom sprayer fitted with hydraulic nozzles to apply pesticides to land.
Pa1 is a prerequisite for the suite of Pesticide Application Awards, only when you have achieved your Pa1 The Safe Application of Pesticides can you be assessed for Pa2a. Please not in practice candidates take their Pa1 test by undertaking a multiple-choice test online, under the supervision of a City & Guilds Independent Assessor in directly before they are due to be assessed for their Pa6a. However, if they fail the Pa1 online test, they are not then permitted to go and take the Pa2a assessment.
