Tree Risk Training
Tree Risk Training | What we'll be doing
Covid-19 update for the UK
If you're here from the AA's Arb Magazine, excited about booking training, we're sorry but we can't run workshops on those dates. Unfortunately, it's not possible to navigate anywhere with any confidence for June or July using the Government's road map out of lockdown. We've rescheduled those dates for September and October and look forward to seeing you then.
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. Along with some basic biomechanics, like why t/R ratios don't help, and a a handy tree biomechanics glossary of terms. 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 strategies, and how to customise them, so you can have happy and reassured clients.
