  1. you have some valid points, i have a clause written into my contract that if i receive any training at an expense and leave the company with 2 years of said expense, i have to pay it back, so im not going to make a run for it, YOU dont know what company i work for, therefore YOU have no idea of the companys income. I dont have a "chip" on my shoulder, im merely after what i should have
  2. i wish i had a choice of where to work, but sadly not.
  3. that would be good if it could be done that way, ive been told that i have to pay for damages if i break something, fair enough, but im not gona pay for something ive broke, doing a job i dont have the ticket for. its all about blame these days, hence everyone wanting proof of tickets.
  4. ive also tried that, with the sectional, stump grinder and chipper courses, again, told no they have put some guys through lowering, sectional, mewp and stump grinder, all paid for by the company, so i shouldnt need to pay.
  5. to cut a long story short, ive stopped doing sectional dismantling at my work, ive asked many times for the correct nptc ticket and been told no. so, what do i legally need to do my work?? i have cs30, 31, 38 and 39. im expected to do all aspects of tree work i regularly get sent to dismantles, crown shaping and reduction, felling large trees, working from mewps, using a chipper ( tracked, tow along and tractor mounted ) tractor mounted winch, using pole saws, spraying pesticides and alot more, but that gives an idea of what im expected to do, without the qualifications to do it. so, am i being an arse?? or do i have a point to say no, if i dont have the ticket?? i wil also add that ive been employed with the company i work for since feb 2008, so all this has been since then.
  6. This topic has gave me lots of information, i was going to apply for my working visa, but trees being the only thing im good at, and the fact im 31, its not looking good for me, i really wish i had got my finger out when i was younger!
