The Environmental Training Centre is launching at the APF at Ragley Estate, Alcester, Warwickshire on 20-22 September.
This purpose built, state of the art training centre based on a picturesque rural estate in the Midlands will be delivering high quality arboricultural training by highly experienced trainers who are well respected within the industry. Courses include tree climbing and aerial rescue, chainsaw maintenance, felling and cross cutting, pesticides, rigging, CPD and refresher courses, etc. The centre has purpose built classrooms, fully equipped workshop, indoor training tree and hard and softwood plantations on site. We will be able to provide flexible and bespoke training solutions for individuals and businesses. With skilled staff shortages industry wide, we aim to assist companies in up-skilling their existing workforce increasing staff retention, productivity and motivation.
Rob Keyzor, director of The Environmental Training Centre and Rob Keyzor Tree Surgeons and Arboricultural Consultants Ltd, commented ‘’There has been a gap in the arboricultural industry for high quality training for some time now and we aim to fill that gap by providing arboricultural courses and forestry and land based training to the highest standard through our exceptional facilities to further the career of arborists. Our brand new centre is perfectly situated on the Staffordshire/Shropshire border, easily accessible and adjacent to acres of woodland. The APF is the perfect place to launch our new venture and we are very much looking forward to it.’’
