NPTC Tree Climbing and Aerial Rescue Assessment

Assessments for NPTC units 206 & 306 (previously CS38) can be carried out straight after the 5-day course has been completed, or at a later date.

 

Assessment only: We provide assessment only options for those with prior experience. There is no requirement to have completed a Red Stag Training course beforehand, however we would advise that interested parties consider a one-day refresher course.
