Save Time, Do It Online - Free VPIT Training Available

By NSW Local Land Services
Posted: 17 Apr 2021
Save time, do it online. Free Vertebrate Pesticide Induction Training (VPIT) is available on the Local Land Services website.
Local Land Services (LLS) has urged landholders to make the most of its free, online Vertebrate Pesticide Induction Training (VPIT) course as autumn baiting kicks into gear.

LLS Invasive Species Business Partner Jake Tanner said the online course not only makes the training more accessible, but allows landholders to save valuable time.

“In the past, the only option we had was to deliver this training face-to-face,” Mr Tanner said,

“By developing the free, online course, landholders can now get the same quality training from the convenience of their own home.

“The course takes roughly two hours to complete, and once finished, a certificate valid for five years will be emailed to participants straight away.

“Having this online resource makes this vital training readily available, so we can ensure more landholders are equipped with the latest information to carry out an effective baiting program on their properties.”

The course takes landholders through the legal responsibilities, safety requirements and practical considerations for the effective use of baits and pesticides on feral pests.

Landholders are also being reminded to make sure their VPIT certifications are up-to-date, as certifications extended by the NSW Environment Protection Authority last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, will now be expiring on 21 April, 2021.

“As with all our baiting programs, we want as many landholders as possible to participate so they can be as effective as possible,” Mr Tanner said.

“Please check your certificates, and make sure it is accessible, as you will be required to show it to LLS staff when collecting baits.

“If you do need to re-complete your training at short notice, fortunately the online VPIT course can be accessed at any time.”

Anyone wishing to acquire and use 1080, Pindone, RHDV, or PAPP baits in NSW must be accredited.

For more advice and information, or to access the free Vertebrate Pesticide Induction Training. Those looking to take part in feral pest control programs can contact their closest LLS office.
