Hi Proclimber,

Just a quick message to say I’ve found a job in Stockholm, now working for Jacksons Trädgård in fact Sweden’s largest Arb comp so I’m really happy and all going well so far! I’m getting a lot of climbing in pretty much everyday and they are teaching me new tricks everyday which is great fun!

Been chatting to the other lads from the course on Facebook, it seems like everyone has hit the ground running with a bit of work so that’s good!

Just like to say a massive thanks to you all for a fantastic course, you guys made the whole experience amazing.

Which I could join the next fast track, i’ll just have to come back for the rigging course one day I hope.

All the best and have a lovely Welsh Xmas! Hope to see you in the future somewhere and do a bbq/drinks/big tree climb like we mentioned.

“Having completed Proclimber’s Fast Track course in October 2015 i certainly feel like i am confident and full of knowledge, which will allow me to progress into the industry safely! During and after completing the course i fired out a good few emails and i was amazed by the response and opportunities that were available. Over my 6 weeks i have learned so much from the instructors who are a great laugh! They certainly know how to make you feel welcome during the duration of the course. The accommodation is great and the food is unbelievable! You won’t be short of food that is for sure. I have gained a lot from this course and met some new friends who i will no doubt see in the future. I would highly recommend Proclimber’s 6 week fast track course, it will be one of the best achievements in your life with endless opportunities. Thanks for everything team!”

“Thanks so much I have a new start in life thanks to your course. Without the start that Proclimber has given me, I was in a hole & did not know what to do. The Army had me in a shelter for 22 years with food and accommodation but I needed a new start, this is what Proclimber gave me. First interview in Germany and I get the job as a climber, the qualifications that Proclimber gave was spot on & gave me everything that I needed. Although the new firm has offered me a degree in Arboriculture after the first year, which they will pay for as long as i stay with them!! Sounds so great I cannot believe my luck. This comes on the back of the Proclimber Fast Track Course”!!!

I just wanted to send a quick email to say a big thank you to everyone at Proclimber. The last 6 weeks will be a period I will never forget, I’ve made some lifelong friends and can’t remember the last time I laughed so much. A massive thanks to Andy and Tom for pushing us through all the assessments with great skill and astonishing patience, I now have some invaluable qualifications that I will take into my new career with great confidence. I have to give Mike and Dave a mention for not only putting up with all the lads but for the impeccable service provided day in day out. The home made pizza on the last night was truly amazing, as was the lovely hot chocolate. And last but certainly not least a huge thank you to you Caroline, I’m sure its not always easy dealing with us lot but right from the word go everything has been superb. Keep up the amazing job, I’ll certainly be recommending Proclimber to anyone I come across, and if you guys are ever in Sweden you always have a place to stay.

Kind Regards

Jake Higgins completed ted our six week intensive Fast Track Tree surgery Course in June/July 2014 he is off to work in Australia, this is what he thought of our course.

“Hey Caroline, Andy and Tom! I would just like to say thank you very much for a great 6 weeks, I had the time of my life in the sunny countryside of Wales! I cant believe how much we learnt, Im sad the course is over and Im missing the daily banter we had.

Thank you Caroline for the amazing hospitality, lovely food and accommodation.. and the clean bed sheets which I used once! And to all the boys on the course, cheers for the good times! I have already started work with a company just a few days after qualifying and got lots more work lined up! This is definitely the best trade in the world, swinging around trees with a chainsaw..! I feel very confident now working thanks to you guys and your very high teaching standards! I promise Andy I will never to do any more flush cuts and guess what lads Im still practicing deep throating the bananas! 🙂

I’m off to Australia in December for good to further my new career and passion, I’m very excited! I would highly recommend this course to anyone, intensive 6 weeks and I enjoyed every minute of it! Will keep in touch with you all.. Thanks again and speak soon!”

”I was on the fast track course of June 2013 and would like to thank the whole Proclimber team for a fantastic course. I am now in full time employment carrying out both utility and domestic work and having a great time doing it. Like most I came to the course as a novice but by the time I left and found myself a job I was able to hit the ground running thanks to the intensive training I received at Proclimber. The theory study on the course is invaluable and gave me a great grounding in the many aspects of tree care. The practical training, although hard work, was very rewarding as your skills progress really quickly as the weeks go on. I would strongly recommend this course to anyone wanting to get into the industry, The accommodation is great, the instructors are knowledgeable and friendly, you have a lot of laughs and give yourself a great chance of employment. Thanks again Proclimber.”
