develop a general understanding of the risk context within which the structural condition of trees is considered
develop an understanding of the Quantified Tree Risk Assessment (QTRA) method and be able to apply it to the risk assessment of groups of trees and individual trees
be instructed in the use of the QTRA manual calculator, which will be provided to all trainees

develop a repeatable approach to the assessment of tree structure from the broad assessment of a tree population to the investigation of a tree
develop an understanding of those attributes of the tree that inform the recognition and evaluation of tree structure, stability, and tree health in relation to tree structure
physiological condition and Indicators of vitality
basic anatomy of wood tissues and of vascular connectivity
structural optimisation in trees
compartmentalisation of decay and dysfunction
develop an understanding of environmental factors that might affect tree structure, their visible indicators and possible consequences
recognise external indicators of structural modifications in the tree, e.g.
decay compensatory growth in the form of both primary shoot development and secondary thickening
develop a general understanding of the principles that inform evaluation of visual observations in relation to differing fungal decay strategies.
