NPTC Qualified
The National Proficiency Tests Council issues certificates of competency in a range of practical skills, attesting the holders ability to carry out tasks in a safe and proficient fashion. Most important of these to the arborist or tree surgeon are certificates of competence in the use of chainsaws. You should not employ anyone using a chainsaw who does not hold the relevant NPTC certificate. Other areas tested by the NPTC include tree climbing, aerial rescue and the use of chippers and stump grinders.
