Our Lantra three-day course aims to provide specific tree inspection training at an advanced level for competent arboriculturists.

Summary / introduction:
Our Lantra three-day course aims to provide specific tree inspection training at an advanced level for competent arboriculturists. This will enable you to identify defects from ground level, from a climbed inspection or inspection aided by the use of a Mobile Elevated Working Platform (MEWP)*.

This professional tree training course will train you in how to specify the necessary remedial works and record the inspection process; this would then form a part of a defensible system.

At the end of the course you will undertake an assessment directly related to tree inspection. The course is not aimed at covering report writing; however, presentation of findings will be examined and advice given.

*Tree climbing and use of MEWP will not be required during the course.
