  1. Just wanted some advice, as well as maybe anyones experiences, I have studied at Capel manor and gained level 2 first diploma in countryside and environment, also have done level 3 national certificate in forestry and arboriculture, cs 30/31/38/39 woodchipper stump grinder, full hgv, been in the industry around 6-7years for a large commercial company, however recently moved into working self employed, but would really like to do some more studying to get more underpinning knowledge and open up new ventures into this industry, I was thinking of either isa certification and doing as many of the approved aa courses or either distance learning for the level 4 arboriculture, if anyone could shed any advice or guidance it would be very much appreciated? cheers
