As i remember it on my assesment i had to do a hand held step cut,ie step cut and break the section off with your hands.A step cut freefall section,self explanitory really and a face cut with back cut section.

The last one is a small face cut on top of the branch with a the back cut underneath the branch using a taped sling utilizing the hinge to pull the branch torwards you.

(Hope that made sense🤔)

Those 3 examples are on a lateral branch/limb.

Next cuts are on a standing section,a pole.

2 examples of a step cut,hand held sections and 2 examples of a face cut with back cut,hinge etc.

Your hinges will be inspected by the assesor.

It all sounds very technical but in reality,its really very straight forward.

You can download the assesment criteria from the nptc website.

Like i said dont worry,take your time and think about each cut and you'll pass no bother.

As a better man than me says

"Good work position is everything"
