NPTC Level 2 Certificate of Competence in Tree Climbing and Aerial Rescue (0039-22)CS38


Course Information

This 6-day course including assessment was known as CS38 (now 39-22) and is designed for complete novices or those with limited tree-climbing experience; having said that we can often introduce different climbing methods for more experienced climbers if needed. You’ll be covering everything from basic knots to accessing the tree, moving around the canopy and spiking. Aerial rescue from the canopy of a tree and from a pole (using spikes) will be covered.
