Online Resources

SpraySMART now provides many of our resources and much more on our web site. Download these whenever you want.

As part of our commitment to the environment we have developed paperless or digital versions of most of our resources and we will keep on expanding the list over the next few months to provide a comprehensive and up to date suite of resources that you can download, use and even edit to customise to your own workplace.

Our commitment is to provide an annual update to our SpraySMART Resource Manual to keep it in line with industry requirements and should any major changes occur in between we commit to update it for these changes as they occur.

As well as our Resource Manual we have added versions of industry documentation that you may need to safely apply and record the usage of your AgVet chemicals. These documents are provided in the following formats:

  1. Word Documents that can be downloaded and edited to customise them to suit your business
  2. Fillable PDF’s that can be completed and stored digitally for ease of use on iPads/Tablets.

Examples of the resources currently available:

  1. Spray Application Records
  2. Chemical Storage Manifest

Online Learning

SpraySMART’s  OnLine Learnng Platform. At present we have 2 courses available. Course 1: Initial Face to Face training and  Course 2: Chemical Safety Update Training.

Initial Chemical Safety Training –  Face to Face training has changed for the better in line with industry feedback. We have rebuilt our course so that it is presented in a “blended” format. This means that many of the standard questions can be completed online prior to attending the face to face training. This allows time to be freed up during the training day to enable more practical work to be undertaken. The old outdated 1 day format did not allow this and students feedback indicated that they wanted more opportunity to learn about the practical aspects of their work.

Update Chemical Safety Training. This course provides the learner with a certificate of completion. It is currently being rebuilt to provide a Statement of Attainment to satisfy the requirements for updating in NSW. At the present it can only be completed by those from all states except NSW. It has been designed for those who cannot attend a face to face training day. They may live in regional or remote areas where training is not often available to them or they may not be able to attend a face to face day due to work commitments or illness. We have developed this completely online update course as part of our commitment to the industry to provide training to everyone no matter where they live or what their circumstances.
