Tree Risk Management & Assessment Training
What's in it for you?
Tree risk management and assessment can be really challenging and confusing, can’t it? Well, the great news is it needn’t be.
We've done the hard work for you
We've modelled the risk with an internationally distinguished Professor in risk of the natural environment. This drives the Tree Risk App and underpins the Strategy risk ratings.
If all that wasn't enough, we've taken out the bafflegab (vague words) and numberwang (difficult maths), so tree risk management and assessment is clear and easy to understand.
One thing you’re going to love about upgrading to VALID
Whether you manage tree risk, or carry out tree risk assessments, you're about to discover how much less complicated and more effective it can be.
Don't take our word for it. Have a look at what Validators are saying about how they feel. These are some words they typically use.
You're an Arborist
Basic Validator (BV in the Calendar) training is for those who may not know that much about trees, but usually spend a lot of time working outside. Basic Validators carry out Passive Assessment by picking up on Obvious Tree Risk Features as they go about their day-to-day routines. They're a risk manager's greatest asset because they're most likely to pick up any red risks first.
