Basic and Standard courses

All currently scheduled public courses are listed below.  If one of the courses below suits you, then either phone or email the trainer directly with your name and contact details and they will get back to you.  If you have any queries, such as price, venue or start time, please contact the trainer.

The Introductory certificate is no longer available.  From 1 January 2018, it has been replaced by two certificates:
  • Growsafe Basic: for those operating under supervision
  • Growsafe Standard: for those working independently and who may have responsibility for managing a workplace or supervising others.  (Note: there are prerequisites for this course.)
If you have an Introductory certificate and need to renew it, review the information about the two certificates to determine which certificate best suits your situation.  Or check out this decision tree to help work out what you need.

If you are new to agrichemicals and planning to do the Growsafe Basic course, we've put together an online pre-learning package to help prepare you for the course. We also have one for those planning on attending a Growsafe Standard course.  Take a look - it's free and will help you get the most out of your face-to-face learning.

If there are no courses scheduled in your region, contact one of the trainers in your area.  Trainers are often willing to travel if the number of trainees justifies it.  Trainers are also often willing to do in-house courses if you have a number of people requiring certification.  This can also be a good way to get your workplace-specific training done at the same time by using your own store, equipment, emergency procedures on the training course.
