  1. Hi all! My name is Joaquin (Kin), a newcomer from Hong Kong and will stay in Derby. I was a climber and also groundsman for 2+ years, wanna enter the industry in the UK. I saw some jobs require CS30,31,38,39 certificates basically. How can I get these courses from around Derbyshire? I just had training courses in Hong Kong, the certificates shouldn't be recognized in the UK.
  2. Hi all, I have been qualified in crosscutting, maintenance and small tree felling for a good few months now, and after a good amount of saving from a part time job (im 16), I would like to get another qualification. My issue(s), is that im not sure if my current PPE will work for tree climbing and free fall techniques. I know I will be required to buy the ropes etc, however I was wondering how much of the PPE I use for work on the ground will translate to CS38/9 if any. My current PPE is: Husqvarna forest helmet Stihl function ergo chainsaw trousers, whilst on my course my instructor mentioned that my trousers has no protection around the back, pointing out that they would not be the style used in climbing, is this correct? Husqvarna chainsaw wellingtons (24 m/s), are chainsaw boots mandatory for CS38 /9 or will I be able to get by with my wellingtons? I would also like to know if a normal climbing harness, carabiner and belay device would be of use? Thanks
  3. Hi, Just passed my aerial rescue and basic climbing with Roland Hemming training. If you need training head down to North Dorset and get yourself ticketed up. If the prices do not persuade you then the experience these guys have to pass on is priceless. The accommodation is sweet too, if you have to stop down there like I did the coppleridge inn is excellent - cooked breakfast everyday! Cheers martin for the fantastic week, even though we got soaked a few days! Check them out - rolandheming.co.uk Andy
  4. Probably explored countless times in the past however what are the opinions on the credibility of Lantra versus the basic NPTC's i.e. 30/31, 38/39 etc. The reason I ask is that the equivalent Lantra course are a whole lot cheaper at the training providers near me however I have been told to get NPTC's as they are considered more credible than Lantra. Is it worth doing Lantra over NPTC given the opportunity or vice versa?

    Old CS 38/39

    Looking for private trainers/assessors who cover the South Yorkshire/north derbyshire area and willing to teach new equivalent to cs 38/39. Already have site organized, equipment and 3/possibly 4 trainees (including myself) ready to go at short notice. Any recommendations greatly appreciated. Thanks
