Level A

Target Participants:

Level A is relatively simple to understand. It is suitable for people involved in the direct handling of fertilizers, particularly in relation to transport, storage, spreading and general rural merchandise roles.

Subject Matter:

Level A training requires the completion of a compulsory core module - Product Knowledge - which provides a basic understanding of fertilizer compost and soil ameliorant products including:
  • Physical identification
  • Understanding labels
  • Storage and handling characteristics
  • The main environmental and food safety risks

Level A also has four elective units:

  • Spreading
  • Storage
  • Transport
  • Customer Service

Each of the elective units runs for approximately half a day, addressing the environmental, food safety and OH&S issues specific to each job.

Level A training is delivered at regional locations throughout Australia.
The course is available to anyone. Members of Fertilizer Australia and AFSA are eligible for a discount on course costs.
