We are delighted to announce that the Association has agreed to take over the marketing, promotion, booking and delivery arrangements for the very successful two-day Intermediate Tree Inspection course, developed by Paul Cleaver of Tree Consultants Wales and Simon Scotting of Simon Scotting Tree Consultancy and Training.
We have been involved in supporting the development of this course, which offers essential information and technical detail for arboriculturists with some experience of tree inspection who are working towards attending the three-day assessed Lantra Professional Tree Inspection course.
We are now offering three new dates and venues for 2019, which you can book online at www.trees.org.uk/Training-And-Events
This 2-day course bridges the wide gap between the Basic Tree Survey & Inspection (BTI) and the Professional Tree Inspection (PTI) courses. With instructor-led sessions and theory-based presentations, you’ll be guided through the various stages of tree inspection, risk assessment and other tree management procedures.
You’ll gain practical experience, receive one-to-one feedback and discover the latest techniques and innovations in the industry. You’ll also meet other tree inspectors in similar situations and roles, and get the chance to ask questions in a supportive and relaxed environment. Course objectives include developing understanding of the legal framework, statute and common law affecting tree inspections, the duties and liabilities of tree owners and managers, and your role within the tree risk management process.
Who the course is for:
- anyone aspiring to carry out tree inspections at a professional standard
- those trained to a (BTI) basic level, aiming for the Professional Tree Inspection (PTI)
- existing professional tree inspectors wishing to consolidate their skills and update their knowledge
By the end of the course delegates will:
- understand the elements and procedures of tree inspection and tree safety management
- be up-to-date with the latest techniques and industry requirements
- have gained practical experience with feedback
- have advanced their existing skills and arboricultural knowledge towards the standards expected of a professional tree inspector
- be able to further develop their arboriculture knowledge to achieve recognition as a professional tree inspector.
