VegPRO is the skills and training program for the Australian vegetable industry, funded through the vegetable research and development levy and shaped by your input to deliver workshops that can upskill you and your staff to help your business succeed.

Its face-to-face chemical handling workshops are designed for the vegetable industry to raise awareness of the potential hazards and risks of chemicals and how to apply them safely.

Following a successful and highly popular series of workshops held around the country earlier in the year, the VegPRO team is returning to South Australia to deliver a second chemical handling workshop for vegetable growers in and around Mount Barker.

Dates: 24-25 July 2018
Location: Auchendarroch House, 17 Adelaide Road, Mount Barker SA

This free course includes training about safe chemical handling, storage and transport, as well as education about the safe application of chemicals using correct personal protective equipment and understanding chemical labels.

Successful participants become accredited with ChemCert Australia in the units AHCCHM303 Prepare and Apply Chemicals and AHCCHM304 Transport and Store Chemicals.
