Tree Risk Assessment & Management Training

Tree Risk Training | What we'll be doing

VALID's App is so smart it'll walk you through the tree risk-benefit assessment, take your photos, and even write your report for you.  So, the two days' training course puts the spotlight on you learning how to fly the App.

Apart from becoming comfortable with the App.  How to go through VALID letter by letter.  And some basic biomechanics, like why t/R ratios don't help.  You'll be learning all you need to know about tree risk and how to measure it.  The other key part of training is getting to grips with the tree risk-benefit 'management packages', and how to customise them, so you can have very happy and reassured clients.

For more information see What is VALID? and VALID Training, or contact us.  Can't make these dates? Or want to follow what we get up to? Let's stay in touch.
