In a nutshell
There are several common categories in pesticide training. Once you have your PA1 theory certificate, you can then take any other module, making sure that you're legal and safe when using chemicals.
The law states that anyone who uses or applies pesticides in agriculture, horticulture, forestry, industry or amenity workplaces must possess a valid Pesticide Certificate in order to comply with regulations. This legislation isn't optional, and it applies to volunteers, employed and self-employed people alike.
