Educhem – Training allowed again

Educhem – Training allowed again

COVID-19 restrictions lift

 

During the COVID-19 level 4 lockdown agrichemical training was not seen as an essential service.  For many growers their accreditation may have expired or bookings deferred during this period.  It is now time to make sure this is high on your lists of priorities. 

Agriculture and Horticulture will have a major role in helping this country recover, we are more than essential, we are a necessity.  Growing operations are obligated to ensure they effectively and safely apply all products, abide by law and best practice.   

Any person/company that currently has accreditation know certificates do not have infinite lifespans and refresher courses are a requirement.  Systems and regulations may change and technical requirements may change or be improved.  Even if you have completed agrichemical training in the past, refresher courses may offer improvements that apply to your businesses.

Horticulture will not be immune to financial difficulties and the pressures we face in this long recovery phase.   Cutting corners is not an option, every bit of fertiliser, agrichemical, sanitiser, biological products need to be applied in such a manner you have effective coverage.  This means don’t over or under apply, make sure your equipment is calibrated regularly and that you never bypass safety protocols and most of all your products are stored safely and securely. 

I highly recommend you contact Educhem specialist agrichemical trainers today.
