With the harsh winter conditions our trees can suffer a beating, so to make them safe or to improve their appearance there may be need for a professional tree inspection. Newlands Training is offering places on the Lantra Awards certificated Professional Tree Inspection course which will be running on 7th/8th/9th February 2011. This is an excellent qualification for anyone looking to add to their skills and knowledge of the arboriculture industry.
Those who wish to achieve this certification will need a good knowledge of trees and ideally already hold a level 3 qualification. Anyone who is wishing to take part in the course but is unsure whether their current level of skill is suitable should contact a member of the Newlands Training team for advice.
Lesley Simpson of Newlands training says, “Anyone wishing to undertake an initial tree survey from the ground and report their findings to a supervisor or arboriculturalist for further action is welcome to join our Lantra Awards certificated Basic Tree Inspection Course on 3rd February 2011. Because this forms the first steps in tree inspection there are no pre-requisite qualifications required for this course”.
Newlands Training also offers a full range of Lantra Awards chainsaw qualifications and NPTC Certificates of Competence. Workers with current skills and up to date certifications in place are compliant with health and safety and insurance guidelines and are ready to work in the world of trees.
