This is a two-day workshop based off the newly released Minimum Industry Standards (MIS) booklets produced by Arboriculture Australia.
This workshop will cover all aspects of Tree Climbing from Climbing equipment and inspection through to Tree Climbing core skills and Techniques.
All attendees will be supplied with their own copy of the MIS Booklet – MIS303 (TREE DISMANTLING – Techniques for rigging and aerial tree removal operations).
