We've been working with the Utility Arb Group on a suite of qualifications for the sector, and plan to have them launched this summer. If you would like to know more, and are coming to the Arb Show, come and have a chat to us on stand T19. All being well I will also be stealing a few minutes in front of the audiences at some of the utility demos, thanks to AUS ltd.
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
