Arborists and Arboriculture
Calling all arborists! Whether you are looking to get started in the world of tree climbing, rigging and pruning or you have been in the industry for years and years there is always something new to learn.
For those who have been working on the ground and looking to reach the dazzling heights within the tree canopies there is one of the possible five-step processes to becoming an arborist:
- Tree climbing and rescue (formally CS38)
- Chainsaw maintenance and cross-cutting (formally CS30) and felling and processing of trees up to 380mm (formally CS31)
- Chainsaw free fall techniques (formally CS39)
- Aerial tree pruning (formally CS40)
- Aerial tree rigging (formally CS41)
Of course, there are lots of other qualifications that you could do too, as and when required. Learning should be a slow and steady experience, give yourself time to learn one thing well and then gain experience.
Your training should grow like a tree, slow, steady and strong which is one of the many reasons we do not offer a fast track option.
Have you been:
- struggling to find the right fit in terms of a training provider?
- confused by all the names, numbers and acronyms for the land based courses that are available to you?
- worried you will get it wrong or waste your hard-earned money?
- concerned that it will feel like going back to school?
- looking to gain a qualification to continue with jobs because legislation has changed?
- offered a new and exciting contract, but need another ticket/qualification to seal the deal?
If you carry out aerial tree work or you have been tasked with organising the training you need to be sure that the tasks are carried out safely, efficiently. Above all, you and your teams need to be fully trained and qualified to get out there on that next contract!
