International Society of Arboriculture to run an April showcase of courses

International Society of Arboriculture is hosting two training courses and a workshop this month covering access platforms, first aid and new planning changes.

All three events take place at Capel Manor College in Enfield. First one looks at mobile elevating work platforms, from outriggers and trailers to vehicle-mounted platforms.

BTS Training Services will host the event on April 24, headed by Kevin Moore, an NPTC assessor and instructor for the land-based sector-skills council LANTRA.

On the same day, Dr Dealga O'Callahan, a tree-planning manager, insurer Keiron Hart and accountant John Danahay will host a planning update and workshop.

Topics covered will include changes to the planning law, tree-preservation orders and conservation areas.

And on 25 April, Ouch Training Services will hold a training day on first aid tailored for arborists. Fees for the three courses range from £35 to £115.
