How to get your Agriculture Chemicals Licence (ACDC Licence)

To get your Agriculture Chemicals Licence or also known as ACDC Licence in Queensland, you have to first be competent in Two (2) units of competency and then submit them to the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries.

Step 1: Do an ACDC Course

The first thing you need to do is a course in Agriculture Chemicals Licence Training such as our course that has the specific units:

  • AHCCHM307 Prepare and apply chemicals to control pest, weeds and diseases
  • AHCCHM304 Transport, handle and store chemicals

Note: If the course has different units you will not be eligible for an ACDC licence.

Step 2: Apply for your Agriculture Chemicals Licence

Once you have your ACDC Chemical Licence Statement of Attainment showing you are competent in those 2 units, you can then apply for your commercial operator licence online here.

Renewal of existing licences

If your email address is recorded against your licence you will receive an automated notification 60 days before your licence expiry date. You can also renew your licence within the 60 day period using the online renewal form.

You will need your licence number to use the online renewal form. If you don’t know your licence number you can search the chemical application licence register.

If your licence has expired, you cannot renew your licence and must apply for a new one.
