Your arborist apprenticeship reflects this industry requirement and you’ll learn the underpinning knowledge and skills needed to work in the tree care industry; from discovering how trees grow and what can affect their health, to using specialist climbing equipment to access the tree canopy as well as important legislation surrounding tree care operations.

The arborist apprenticeship covers a diverse range of subject areas that will allow you to further your career in the knowledge that you will have a firm foundation of skills and learning.
