- Rigging & dismantling unit CS41 is the only unit we miss out during this course, this is simply because it would not be possible for anyone to take this on board after only six weeks. However we will give you £100 off the course price to any Fast track student coming back to complete their CS41 with us! We would ask for you to wait 6-12 months before attempting this, by which time you will have the experience working in harness to successfully complete this course.
What will this course give you as an individual?
- Most of your training & Assessments in one go, without wasting months or even years for the next training course or assessment.
- The ability to advance rapidly by giving you the knowledge & hands on experience, thus the confidence to progress in this Industry.
- To approach any employer as a qualified and sought after Tree Surgeon, which in this economic climate would put you in a most favorable position to gain employment, or if you decide to go into business for yourself. It goes without saying that this course does not give you years of experience, but combine that with a great introduction to Arboriculture, over 200hrs of contact with industry professionals, the training & qualifications you achieve, now this is a recipe for success.
- Invest in yourself (self worth), to increase your knowledge (your value) through the use of continuous personal development that Proclimber Training strongly advocates, just as the ISA certified Arborist program uses CEU's (Continuing Education Units), to continue education, & encouraging individuals to keep topping up their knowledge after they have become a Certified Arborist.
- All this will open doors for you, not just in the UK & Europe but Worldwide.
