Lantra Level 2 Award in the Safe Application of Pesticide Using Hand Held Equipment (PA1/PA6 Combined Course)


Subject Area: Course code: Course Type:
Horticulture & Plant Science HR060E07/21/2 Short Course

Course Information

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.

This qualification has 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.

This course combines the Lantra Level 2 Award Safe Use of Pesticides (PA1) course with the Lantra Level 2 Award in the Safe Application of Pesticide Using Hand Held Equipment (PA6).
