Fast Track Tree Surgery Course

This 4 week block course is designed for someone who would like a career in the arboricultural industry and can’t commit the time to our standard block course. We cannot promise you that you will be the fastest climber after this course but we will give you a great start into the tree climbing world. This course is intended to bring an inexperienced operator up to competent operator level, in the process becoming a real asset to an arborist company.

Please note this course does not include Felling & Processing Trees over 380mm, this can be done at a later date, if required, or by joining the tree surgery 6 week block course instead.

Most of your training & assessments in one go without wasting months or even years waiting for the next training course or assessment.

What's Involved Pricing and Funding Qualifications

We will train you to over and above the following NPTC standards and will provide successful candidates with 7 City & Guilds/NPTC awards:

  • Unit 201 – Maintenance of the Chainsaw and Cutting System & Cross-Cut Timber Using a Chainsaw (CS30)
  • Unit 202 – Fell and Process Trees up to 380mm (CS31)
  • Unit 206 – Access a Tree Using a Rope and Harness (Formerly Cs38)
  • Unit 306 – Carry out Aerial Rescue Operations (Formerly Cs38)
  • Unit 308- Use of a chainsaw from a rope and harness (Formerly Cs39)
  • LANTRA First aid + Forestry Certificate
  • NPTC Use of brushwood chipper

We do not push other units within the course. This course has many skills to learn within a 4 week period. The idea is to make you more than competent on the units within the course. Tree surgery has skills which are learned and honed in years not weeks, however this course is the perfect first step to get you heading in the right direction.

We look at pricing structures for quoting tree works. Waste products off your tree works, how can profit be made from these? What paper work is involved in running a tree surgery company? Best way of marketing your company to gain more tree surgery work.

These are some of the things we would look at throughout the course. Towards the end of the course a period of relevant work experience so that candidates can see how the skills they have learnt are put into practice in a commercial environment.


£2600 per person

The NPTC tests for the felling and climbing units are undertaken by an independent assessor. The cost of these assessments is fully covered by your course fees. We arrange the assessments for the felling units within a few days of the end of the felling course. However, we do not always arrange the climbing assessments straight after the climbing course for the following reasons:

Passing the felling units is a pre-condition of taking the CS39 assessment, so if a candidate did not pass CS30 or CS31, they would have booked and paid for a test they couldn’t take.

After 5 continuous days of climbing a significant number of candidates are sufficiently tired that their performance on a test would be significantly impaired. Climbing is a skill which it can take some time to become proficient at, and consequently a candidate who takes the time to practice and hone his skills is much more likely to pass. Because the assessment involves undertaking 2 simulated rescues, speed of movement in the tree is important.

As a quest to get everyone to pass the full NPTC units we would like to a skills check. This would be a sort interview and short session of tree climbing to see if you are happy with heights and fitness involved in the course. We will do this skill check for free.
