Advice about insurance

Recommended Posts

That is really good advice actually. Perhaps, I’ve gotten too old, been stuck in my ways too long to remember the “starting out” phase. 
It is good advice indeed. That's what I did for my carpentry apprenticeship in Switzerland before I joined the army for a year.

I'm making the most of my move to England to do a career change and have the "theoretical" side of the job all planned out with my Arboriculture Foundation Degree course starting in September but I'm realising that finding experience on the practical side is proving to be difficult. (Unprofessional businesses, false promises etc...)

That's why I've just decided to grafually pay for my practical training myself (CS30 and 31 lined up!) and atteign experience from small subcontracts.

I would work out what you want to do. The Foundation degree is not going to much value at this stage of your tree career if you want to be a climber or do proper tree work with a chainsaw. Far better to do a 12 week tree surgery qualification, get the tickets and get experience..

 

If you want to be a Tree Officer or consultant then the degree might be the route to go. .

Thank you all for your advice, it really is much appreciated! You have given me a lot to think about..
