Sheep Dipping courses meet rules on Dip Purchase & Safety

Jul '09
Sheep dipping courses to enable farmers to achieve the necessary “Safe Use of Sheep Dip” licence – a requirement for the purchase of sheep dip – are now being held across the whole of the south of England by British Wool Marketing Training Ltd which is part of the British Wool Marketing Board.

And sheep producers residing in the south west who attend one of the day-long courses can benefit from a 40% subsidy which has reduced the cost to around £50 for the course - plus the £100 payment for the dipping license.

British Wool Marketing Training Ltd has now become an Assessment Centre for the “Safe Use of Sheep Dip” licence through the National Proficiency Tests Council.

Courses have already been held in the south west and organiser Alison Gould - based at the BWMB's Exeter office - is keen to hear from any sheep producers in the south of England as a whole who need to attend a course to achieve the necessary licence.

Running the on-farm courses is freelance training instructor Caroline Woolley. She says sheep farmers who haven't got a licence and who intend to dip sheep this season need to attend a course to achieve the necessary training to obtain the dipping certificate.

“The Safe Use of Sheep Dip licence is required by farmers who intend to purchase sheep dip. Legislation now requires that at least one member of those involved in the dipping operation must hold a licence,” says Caroline.

The day-long courses involve a discussion session and explanation of the regulations, a GOLA (Global On Line Assessment) test to ensure each applicant is fully conversant with the regulations followed by an oral test involving the protective wear that must be worn during the dipping operation.

“If applicants are successful on the day they will be issued with their licence within approximately four weeks,” says Caroline.

Courses are held on-farm and can cater for around seven individuals. Course locations can be arranged to suit areas where there are sufficient enquiries to warrant staging the assessments.
