    What is VALID?

    Tells you what VALID is all about.

    Validator Training (16 hours of CPD/CEU)

    Let's you know what we'll be doing and the benefits you'll get from being a Validator, beyond the headline benefits of:


    You having the first complete tree risk-benefit management and assessment system, which helps to protect you and your clients.


    You having a risk assessment model (the engine of the Tree Risk App), which is the only one out there that's has been designed with a Professor in Risk. It also covers what we'll be doing over the two days of training.


    Some other benefits include:

    • Accredited Validator for 5 years & no additional annual fee
    • Tree Risk App that'll print your Detailed Assessments
    • Validator Strategy to include in your fee proposals and reports
    • Listing on the Find an Arborist (Validator) directory
    • Community page access to get help and ask questions

        Have you got a VALID Tree Risk-Benefit Management Strategy?

        What is VALID.pdf?

        This half-day seminar will show you how you can discharge your duty of care if you own or manage trees.

        It’ll include the work we've done with the Tasmanian Department of State Growth, and how it can easily translate to Councils, Parks, and Landowners.

        There’s an opportunity here to have many of Tasmania’s major duty holders all singing from the same hymn sheet when it comes to how you go about managing the risk from branches of trees falling.

        The seminar is being held at the Hobart Skills Centre and everyone is welcome.  We'll spend the last part of it in a park having a look at some trees.

        We've got a range of Tree Risk-Benefit Management Strategy templates that are free and  released under a creative commons licence.  They can be downloaded from our Risk Management page.

        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 most of the hard work for you, behind the scenes, with a Professor in risk of the natural environment and the risk modelling.  Then taken out the bafflegab (vague words) and numberwang (difficult maths) from tree risk so it's clear and easy to understand. If all that wasn't enough, we've even written your Tree Risk-Benefit Management Strategy for you.

        If you're assessing tree risk, the Tree Risk App and Validator Strategy you're trained to use does a lot of the heavy lifting for you and your clients.

        One of the things you’re going to love about upgrading to VALID is how much more user-friendly you’ll find it.  Whether you manage tree risk, or carry out tree risk assessments, you're about to discover that it's going to get a lot less complicated and a lot more effective.

        Don't take our word for it, look at what they're saying on the right.

        Once you've moved ahead with VALID, these are some of the words you'll use to describe how you feel about it.

        "Uncomplicated...intuitive...simpler...clearer...smarter".

        Have a look at What is VALID? and VALID Tree Risk Training, or Basic Tree Risk Assessment Training to find out more.

        Can't make any of the current training dates?  Or want to follow what we get up to?  Then simply fill in our Let's stay in touch form and we'll let you when your next opportunity comes along.

        Or contact us to find out how we can help you take the bafflegab and numberwang out of tree risk.
