About the course

The AusChem course runs for two (2) days with elements of both theory and practical.  You need to be able to read and have high school level of mathematical skills to complete this course.  Over this two (2) day course you’ll develop a complete understanding of how to safely handle and use chemicals. We cover everything in a helpful and informative training style that will get you up to speed.

" The training was successful as there was a Vietnamese translator that help closed the gap of having a language barrier. This allowed a better understanding of the regulations and risk of using chemicals. The training was also very interactive and allowed time for questions and a discussion "
