  1. Still studying away like a man possessed [emoji12]…but things are making sense…just a quick one? 20 mins per Tree assessment?…would you guys concur? Got a pro forma made up so trying to nail down the time aspect [emoji106]
  2. Thanks for all the fantastic advice guys, thoroughly appreciated. Attended the ITI down at Myerscough last month and was fantastic and just what I’d hoped it would be. Jim and Paul were excellent and very patient and understanding so feel a lot better equipped now for June. Looking forward to getting stuck in! [emoji106][emoji4]

    Just looking for some pearls of wisdom and pointers guys. Been employed in Forestry / Arb since I left school at 17, 50 now. During career I’ve achieved HND forestry and for last 9 years I’ve been a Utility Arb Surveyor (UA5). My intention is to sit PTI in June and about to attend ITI next week in prep for this. My questions are that I’ve never been a climber, always been on the ground when on the tools but I’ve worked with some amazing climbers and think I held my own as a groundie. Will this be detrimental to obtaining the PTI? Been accumulating the reading material for a couple years now and I don’t think I’ve bitten off too much…hopefully lol. Anyhoo, any pointers, words of wisdom, nuggets of info gratefully appreciated..
  4. Evening People, been on the forum for a good while now but first post. Decided to take the plunge and sit the PTI course/ exam in June. Scheduled to attend the ITI course in early March. I currently work for a large utility firm as a UA surveyor and have done for past 9 years. Beforehand I was in Forest Research and Local Authorities Arb/ Forestry departments. So, not my first Rodeo… I was just wondering if there are any surveyors out there that wouldn’t mind me shadowing them for a few hours / jobs between now and June? Based in North East of Scotland but can travel to central belt if necessary. Any help, tips, words of wisdom gratefully appreciated [emoji106][emoji4]
