This Lantra Awards suite of refresher modules covers ground based forestry & arboricultural operations. It will update operators with the appropriate techniques and underpinning knowledge required to ensure that they continue to be confident when working within forestry, arboriculture or allied industries. It will also ensure awareness of current health and safety legislation and industry good practice keeping individuals up-to-date and skilled.
Each module is supported by its own booklet outlining minimum course content and will only be delivered by instructors approved by Lantra Awards.
The modules are designed to be short, sharp and focussed and will provide refresher training for operators who already hold recognised qualifications.  The courses should not to be used as a substitute for novice operator training nor will they cover the wide range of skills needed for inexperienced operators to work safely.
There is no limit to the number of modules that can be taken. This allows flexibility and each course can be tailor-made to  the individual needs of the learner or groups of learners. The final duration of courses will depend on which modules are delivered. Each delegate will be observed very closely and a full report on performance will be given by the Instructor at the end of the course. For delegates who are showing weaknesses in any area of operation, a detailed list of reccommendations will be made to bring skills back up to standard.
Note Due to the nature of some of the training a minimum level of fitness is required for specific modules. Whilst we would not want to disadvantage any learner it is an essential requirement. 

The mandatory module is valid for a 5 year period and must be completed before any other modules can be undertaken.

A number of alternative Health & Safety qualifications will be recognised and can replace the mandatory module if the learner has completed it and been certificated within 5 years prior to the refresher course commencing.


For example:

IOSH (Managing Safely)

NEBOSH Certificate
