    Hi Stephen, yes it's a full on 6 week fasttrack course including all nptc tkts from chainsaw maintenance and cross cutting to tree climbing using a chainsaw from rope and harness. i think the only tkts not covered are the rigging ones as this would be just too much to take in the 6 weeks. My only experience in the tree world was a 6 month stint tree felling on an estate outside Stirling about 20 yrs ago which although my career has taken a different path i have always wanted to get back to working with trees and am now in a position to make it happen. Any advice most welcome. Thanks in advance.

    Hi All, Im thinking about going down from Fife to Proclimber in South Wales to do the 6 week fast track course. I would appreciate any advice given from personal experience or otherwise. Also what are the best routes out there for gaining more theory based knowledge. Many thanks.
