ACDC – Agricultural Chemicals Distribution Control includes the theoretical and practical components of three (3) units of competency chosen by the Department of Primary industries to meet skills and knowledge required to be able to apply to hold an ACDC unrestricted Licence.
This course consists of three (3) units of competency that make up the skill group that includes;
- the skills and knowledge to identify and apply and reporting control weeds methods;
- hazard and risk management;
- prepare, apply and safely use chemicals;
- MSDS use;
- chemical records;
- and spray plans;
- transportation, chemical management, and storage.
Students will be required to complete the course using the English language, both spoken and written. Students who are wishing to seek an ACDC license must have sufficient LL&N skills to read and comprehend chemical labels/MSDS to gain adequate knowledge of the chemicals they will be using, and individual requirements for the target species they will be spraying.
Units of competency:
- AHCPMG301 Control Weeds
- AHCCHM303 Prepare and Apply Chemicals
- AHCCHM304 Transport, handle and store chemicals
On successful completion of this course, participants will be issued a ‘Statement of Attainment’ certifying competence of the above units. To obtain an ‘ACDC licence’, a person makes application to the Department of Primary Industries (DPI) on the approved application form and forwards that to the DPI with a certified copy of the accredited qualification and the appropriate licence fee. Your Commercial Operator’s Licence for ground distribution of herbicides will be posted to you by the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries.

The main aim of licensing commercial operators is to promote responsible chemical use. By satisfying the competencies of the licence qualification, commercial operators have shown that, among other things, they know the equipment and herbicides that they will be using and the effects that weather conditions may have on a chemical application.
