- The Big Tree Climb. We offer trainees a chance to go on a fun big tree climbing experience, under the supervision of our instructors.
- We will give you the opportunity to ask any amount of questions from our team of time served professionals, Instructors/Assessors, all of whom have years of combined experience from different sectors of the Industry, including Commercial Forestry, Private Sector Arborculture, Municipal Arboriculture, Utility Arboriculture, Tree Consultancy and much more.
- We offer you an amazing 10% discount on all Proclimber products for the six week period, and we will source chainsaws & tools for you at a reduced price.
- You will be given a contact number after completing this course; if you have a burning Forestry/Arboricultural related question or you need some technical advice, we will do our best to help you. We offer you support even after the course has finished.
- Tree Rigging & Dismantling unit 002109 (CS41) is the only unit we miss out during this course, this is simply because it would not be possible for most to take this on board after only a few weeks of climbing, you will need to get loads of hours in the harness before tackling the tree rigging/dismantling course. However we will give you £100 off the course price to any Fast track student coming back to complete their 002109 (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.
- We also offer other courses like Utility Arboriculture, Off-road driving, winching & trailer work & ATV driving.
What will this course give you as an individual?
- Most of the Training and Assessments in one go, to become qualified without wasting months or even years for the next training course or assessment to happen, as this is normally the decision of your employer
- The ability to advance rapidly by giving you the knowledge & hands-on experience, and the resulting confidence to progress in this Industry as a qualified Arborist.
- To approach any employer as a qualified and valued, sought-after Arborist (Tree Surgeon), which in this economic climate would put you in a most favorable position to gain employment, as you have shown comitment & invested in yourself to gain a career in Arboriculture. Or maybe to serve you well if you decide to go into business for yourself later. It goes without saying that the Proclimber Fast Track Tree Surgery Course does not give you years of experience, but what it does offer is a great introduction to Arboriculture, over 200hrs of contact with industry professionals and the training & qualifications you achieve; a fantastic start to this fascinating industry, now this is a recipe for success.
- An investment in yourself (improving your self-worth) and an increase in your knowledge (adding value as a professional) 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, & encourage individuals to never stop topping up their knowledge even after they have become a Certified Arborist.
- All this will open doors for you, not just in the UK & Europe, but Worldwide.
- Please remember we have limited places available on each Proclimber Arborist training course, so book your place as soon as possible.
