Good morning - assuming these to be more 'technical', rather than practical skills courses, you may wish to also take a look at our website (Arb. Assoc.) which also includes some free learning opportunities with the various Webinars available..."at your leisure" :)

As above.

’CPD accredited’ means nothing.


I’d do the free course, but not bother paying for the certificate!


All learning is good learning.

Not neccesarily.


That 'alison' online training looks utter junk. No visible oversight or regulatory body, offering links to 'earn on alison by becoming a course creator' in the same breath as promising a diploma.


Any information they would give you on a an arborcultural course I'd say would be very suspect. Probably an AI harvested scrape of the internet, culminating in a 'test' whereby you have to specify which grade of concrete to use to fill pruning wounds...
