Funded UA 1 to 5 Courses



We are very pleased to announce that we have received confirmation from the MOD that we are now approved to deliver UA1, 2, 3, 4 & 5 through the scheme. We are able to offer UA qualifications as a package of training to allow candidates to make best use of their available funding, and provide them with increased opportunities for employment in the utility arboriculture industry.

Service leavers can start their resettlement process two years before their leaving date. If they are still in service, candidates may have 20+ days paid resettlement time to attend training plus have their travel and accommodation paid for by the MOD. The scheme allows for funding ‘credits’ to be accessed up to 10 years after leaving service.

We hope our package of courses will prove valuable to employers seeking to recruit military service leavers. In addition the package options will be of benefit to ex military personnel who are already employed within arboriculture industry, and still have access to their funding credits. Package options include:

• UA1 – 5 Groundsman/Surveyor Option (CS30 & 31 pre-requisites not included)
UA1, UA2.1, 2.2 (includes Lantra Tree Survey), UA3, UA4 & UA5
Duration = 14 days


• UA1 – 5 Arborist/Surveyor Option (CS30, 31, 38, 39 and 40 pre-requisites not included)
UA1, UA2.1, 2.2, 2.3 (includes Lantra Tree Survey), UA3, UA4 & UA5
Duration = 14 days


• UA1 & 5 Surveyor Only Option
UA1, UA2.1

(includes Lantra Tree Survey), UA3, UA4 & UA5 (includes Lantra Avoidance of Underground Services & Overhead Lines)
Duration = 13 days

More information will shortly be available on our website TKF Chainsaw Training Courses, Tree Surgery, Pesticide Training, ELCAS Business Management Courses, throughout Yorkshire, UK and Ireland Alternatively if you have any queries on course options and/or cost, please contact Jonny Ripley at the TKF office on 01484 685114 or jonny.ripley@tkftraining.co.uk

Our candidates are often seeking work experience and employment. We would appreciate hearing from employers who may be able to offer them opportunities.

Re: Funded UA 1 to 5 Courses

Hi there,
Thanks for your enquiry

We are still looking at tying dates together to accommodate folk so I need to get back to you on this one.
However depending on which course(s) you were considering I have included a link in to this post to ELCAS so that you can see the costs and courses we run under this funding scheme. If you need anything else don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Re: Funded UA 1 to 5 Courses

Are there any employers who could be interested in offering utility, arboriculture, forestry, or groundcare work experience and/or employment opportunities to our military service leavers?

We'd appreciate any potential opportunities. Thank you.
