SINGLE ROPE TECHNIQUE (SRT) is a set of methods used to descend and ascend on the same single rope. The course will cover safe single rope techniques exploring the safest ways to use the correct ropes, knots, devices, safety cords and karabiners. Attendees will have a hands-on practical experience understanding the theory behind it, the devices, ropes and using them in the tree. This is a popular course and open to arborists of all abilities. You’ll meet other arborists and share ideas and experiences. Instructors Geoff Pugsley and Ben Rose are both very experienced users of SRT in their work and both share a keen interest in the latest developments.

Dear Forum, The Arb Association is running a series of seminars to promote BS3998:2010. I am writing to the forum to ask for those of you out there who have contact with tree surgeons to promote the event to them, and indeed come along yourselves. The reason that the AA asked me to help is that in January myself and my colleagues ran a successful seminar on a local level in Devon – we did this because we were aware that many local tree surgeons are rather isolated and often disconnected from the industry. We realised that compliance with the revised BS standard puts contractors in a position where ‘ARB Approved Contractor’ status would be the logical next step. Paul Smith came along and promoted the AA and the revised Arb Approved scheme that is now more inclusive for smaller businesses. The success of our event was in no small part down to the support of our Local TO’s who promoted the event to tree surgeons in their area – AA members or otherwise. We had great feedback from the seminar we ran and managed to fill the places within a few days -– several of the delegates have told us that they now want to go back to the books or become qualified following the event. We were delighted with this and feel that we achieved our objective. We feel that many forum members will have direct access to the sort of contractors who will be interested in this so I am appealing to you all (and especially to the local authority tree officers) to spread the word and encourage your local contractors to come along – hopefully this will benefit you as well as them. The course is reasonably priced (£50) and the BSI have extended the 50% discount for the document to attendees. In my opinion the revised standard is a well written, professional and comprehensive document and I believe that the industry should support and promote it. I have included a link with the details of the local events. Any queries then please contact me off forum - firstname.lastname@example.org.
