  2. Hi All, Anyone had any experience of the ARBORICULTURE I BHT106 ACS distance learning course (website listed below)? Is it recognised? I am looking into routes to eventually becoming a tree surveyor and was wondering if this would be a useful course to take? Has anyone got any general advice on the best route(s) to becoming a qualified tree surveyor? Thanks in advance, Sam https://www.acsedu.co.uk/Courses/General-Horticulture/ARBORICULTURE-I-BHT106-93.aspx
  3. Sorbus are pleased to announce that we are hosting another workshop to benefit our customers on: Modern Climbing Tools and Techniques A complete practical overview of all the latest tools and techniques run by expert trainer in tree work and forestry, Tony Darbyshire and 3ATC winner Geoff Pugsley. An insight into rapidly developing new techniques and rope climbing tips for the arborist climber to help you be as productive, safe and comfortable as possible in the trees. Saturday 8th October We are all aware that this industry is constantly evolving and new techniques and tools are being introduced regularly, it almost seems that you just learn one technique and then there is another new shiny gadget out to learn about all over again! To help climbers get a better understanding we are offering a ‘hands-on’ experience in a variety of systems, starting at our brand new premises in Frome and then off to the beautiful grounds of Ammerdown Park in Kilmersdon. To get your space and for more information book online here: https://www.sorbus-intl.co.uk/index.php?route=product/product&path=699&product_id=7062 If you would like to discuss any aspect of the course with us please don't hesitate to call us on 01373 475540 or email: [email protected] Thanks, The Sorbus Team
  4. I have read a few posts from people in my position taking a change in career. I am 36 now and am aware that I am not going to be the strongest climber for much longer. I am half way through the NPTC Tree Surgery course at Kilmarnock College. I have my climbing, rescue and chainsaw maintenance and cross cutting tickets and am looking for some opportunities to gain some more experience. By the end of the course which finishes in June I will have my small and medium felling and aerial cutting tickets also. I would like to gain some work experience and start earning asap and so have been contacting some of the larger companies who are more lightly to provide additional training. I have also contacted the smaller companies. I have looked on ArbJobs.Com but there is no drop down for Scotland in the regions selector. I am interested in developing my climbing and cutting skills and am aiming to develop my skills with a view to a career in forestry and conservation. Any guidance or advice you can offer would be appreciated. All comments and suggestions welcome.

  6. Hi everyone, im looking at doing the FdSc Arboriculture on-line degree through Myerscough college, and i want to find some things out about it before i decide to do it, and i know some of you guys have done the course. -How long do you spend per day doing the work? -How does the videoconferencing part of the course work? will i have to get a camera?? -And do employers value an online degree in the industry as much as a normall one? Any help or tips would be much appriciated, Thanks!!

  10. Hi Everyone, I’m looking for some help in changing my career and hopefully becoming an avid member of this forum. I’m currently 24 and based in the west midlands, I’m looking to become a qualified Arborist with the intention of moving to New Zealand within the next 2 years. I have no previous experience in the industry. I’d like to hear your guys advice on the below if possible? • Do UK tickets mean anything in NZ? I have asked this question to potential employers abroad • Is it worthwhile me training in the UK or should I just start fresh in NZ? • I was thinking of doing the Proclimber course but due to the financial commitment I need to be sure of its benefit to me now and for when I move • Do you feel that the course would be a good method for me to enter the trade • What could I do within the UK to increase my employability in the industry in NZ and for my time working here in the UK? This is not just a whim for me, I’m really dedicated on changing my career to something that I love and I’m willing to invest and do what it takes. I’m just looking for some input from people in the know. Any help is really appreciated, Luke
  11. Hello, I am currently wishing to undergo a career change, I hope to become a tree surgeon but realize to do this I will have to start with the basics and undergo the training I need. Would you or do you know anyone that would be interested in taking on a trainee / apprentice? would there be a basic minimum i would need to do this ? such as the courses i have listed below. I am currently saving to complete: Basic Crosscutting and maintenance Small tree felling Tree Climbing & Aerial Rescue Use of a chainsaw from a rope I will hopefully be completing these over the next 4 months. if you know of any grants or funding that i could access i would be very grateful. Or if you want someone to update your website / social marketing in exchange for course payment, that could also be an option. I am looking for experience, either working for a company or an individual that would be willing to train me / share there experience with me and help me achieve my long term goal. I am currently in full time employment and am looking at the options available to me to re-train either at college / with a tree surgeon or company in the south (I live in Bournemouth). I am very determined and have a variety of skills, as you can see in my attached CV. However i would like to reiterate that its experience I am after, a foot in the door and a chance to work my way up the ladder, so to speak. If I have to continue my current employment to pay for the courses required and gain experience on the weekend, I am more than willing to do this. Thanks for taking the time to read this and I look forward to your reply. P.S the free chocolate is for the person who is willing to take me on and train me up Jamie Macdonald CV.doc
  12. Hello forum, My name is Tim I'm a 24yo about to come to the end of 8 years served as a Combat Medic in the British Army. I am living just outside Oxford and there for the next 4 years as my wife is a RAF nurse posted to that location. I am looking to start a career as a Tree Surgeon and I'm a complete beginner. I have always been interested in tree surgery and now comes the time where I'm going to commit to making a go of it! I have 6 months left to serve and I can use that time to train and partake in any courses I can complete to put me in the best employable position. I'm looking for advice and tips on training, jobs, and just any info to get me started! Thanks for reading this and would love to hear some opinions. Regards Tim.
  13. Hello All, I am currently working on a self employed basis for a fencing company. For a while now I have felt that I would like to become a tree surgeon. I am due to complete CS30/31 at the start of next month which has taken me a while to save up for. Is anybody aware of any entry level-online qualifications that I can complete while I am still in full time work? I know there are college courses available out there but if I could work full time for a tree surgeon and learn the theoretical side of Arboriculture then this would suit me much better. Also if you feel that it would be better to go back to college instead of completing a course online please let me know. Thanks Luke
