Do you believe there is a skills gap in the Queensland arborist industry?
As a Not for Profit incorporated association representing arborists in Queensland and Northern New South Wales, our mission is to provide support and guidance to the arborist industry and our members. That’s why we’re excited to support Rod Morris from the QLD Farmers Federation who is currently investigating the skills gap in the arborist industry.
Rod is looking to determine if improving the delivery method and funding for education courses will reduce or even remove the industry skills gap. To ensure both view points are covered, there are different surveys for students and employers with all data submitted being anonymous.
We know that the issue of a skills gap has become increasingly prevalent in recent years and we’re happy to be able to support the improvement of arborist education in QLD while maintaining an independent industry position.
Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts and experiences on education and training in the Queensland arborist industry.
