New to the industry and Seeking Advice


Recommended Posts

I am currently a Dairy farmer and looking for a career change into Tree Surgery.


I have a background in Outdoor Education so have done plenty of climbing (Rocks), and I’m not scared of physical outdoor work, in all Conditions.


I just wanted to ask if anyone had any advice on how to get into the industry? I would love to do a course to get me qualified but understand that I will need to keep learning for a good few years in the Industry. 


In in particular I need to know, 


what qualifications would I need before I can start earning money?


Do people usually have an employer in mind before committing to a course to gain qualifications ? 


Thanks in in advance for any advice,
