Members - Join City & Guilds

Who Can Join?

The scheme is open to anybody who holds an appropriate City & Guilds NPTC PA certificate of competence, or was born before 31st December 1964 and is applying pesticides under "Grandfather Rights".

Please note that the Plant Protection Products (Sustainable Use) Regulations 2012 allow the Grandfather Rights exemption to continue until 26 November 2015.  After this date everyone who uses plant protection products authorised for professional use must hold a recognised City & Guilds NPTC certificate of competence.  ATB Training Certificates and other evidence of training are not acceptable.

What is involved?

As a member you are required to collect 30 or more CPD points in each three-year period to qualify for membership renewal. A wide range of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) events and courses are approved for NRoSO members. Events and courses are publicised in the agricultural press, by colleges, in local training providers’ newsletters and under the events section of this website.
