The objective of the GROWSAFE Standard programme is to recognise agrichemical users who are able to demonstrate a competence in the use of agrichemicals within a specific sector, including adherence to the principles and contents of the New Zealand Standard.
The Standard programme is managed by the New Zealand Agrichemical Education Trust (NZAET). GROWSAFE Standard is a voluntary programme.
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 eg one location, one crop and/or equipment type (or operating under the supervision of someone with an Advanced or RCA certificate).
In most instances, the Standard certificate is a prerequisite for GROWSAFE’s higher level programmes.
Achieving GROWSAFE Standard
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.
This certificate is (level 2) in the grow safe standards, if attending this course and you are non-successful, you may be awarded the grow safe basic certificate (Level 1).
There is likely to be some pre-work or pre-reading required for this course.
