Lantra Awards has introduced refresher training modules covering ground-based forestry and arboricultural operations, in line with industry needs and with the National Occupational Standards (NOS).

The "short, sharp and focused" modules are intended to refresh operators on topics including current health and safety legislation and industry good practice, and is adaptable to learners' requirements.

The training and certification body plans to launch further courses and qualifications later in the year, including Aerial Tree Rigging, Assisted Felling Operations and Emergency Tree Work.

The Lantra Awards-sponsored Register of Tree Work Operatives (R2), intended to become the standard means through which operatives record skills, training and experience, is also due to launch later this year.
