courses for tree inspection?

Recommended Posts

I have been working as a tree surgeon for a year now since doing my qualifications in climbing maintenance and cutting. i have reached a point where i want to gain more experience in inspecting trees, since i work full time it would have to be a part time or evening class. any suggestions? i know lantra do a one day basic tree inspection course but was wanting to do something more advanced, possibly leading to a qualification, any suggestions would be much appreciated!

Depends on your experience, but it may be worth considering the Basic TI course to cover the fundamental aspects of inspection before moving toward the intermediate level and then Professional TI after gaining 2/3 years work field experience. 

 


Acquire key tree inspection skills with our one-day course for learners.


 


<p class= lead dblue >The Professional Tree Inspection certificate (PTI) is widely recognised as the benchmark...

 

 


Hone your skills with our three-day course for experienced inspectors.

I did the basic at a similar stage of experience. Learnt a bit and could get professional indemnity insurance to do paid surveys. I then really started to learn my fungi etc and a few years later did my pti. Really glad I had 5yrs experience behind me before sitting the pti exam, it's quite tough and they get a fair number of fails.
If you are keen buy some books, Principles of tree hazard assessment, by Lonsdale.
Arb assoc Arborist Fungi guide or dave humphreys new book which I've not got round to buying yet.
There's a few more too but those will get you well on the right path.
All the best

Same as stated the PTI is really useful one, you could do some the Arb Associations 1 day work shops.  You could also do the level 4 diploma in arb
