SGM provides a range training courses in Forestry and Arboriculture and Groundcare operations. Our courses are delivered by LANTRA Awards training providers and we can also arrange NPTC assessments in all areas.
Learn from the experts
LANTRA Awards have many years experience of developing training courses to the highest standard. The courses are delivered exclusively through a network of registered training providers and instructors, so you can be sure that you will be trained by people who are experienced and properly qualified.
Training is done in small groups so you receive plenty of individual attention, supplemented by course materials. LANTRA Awards work closely with the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) to ensure their materials reflect current safe working practices.
Benefits of the certificate
A certificate of competence demonstrates that the successful candidate has experience, technical knowledge and ability, which have been independently and reliably assessed to the national standards. It also satisfies employers PUWER ’98 obligations that all operators should be adequately trained.
Trained operators are more aware of personal and public safety issues. They also tend to be more efficient and have less downtime due to accidents, which in turn leads to lower repair costs.
Our courses are designed to give operators the knowledge and understanding required to carry out:
- Health & Safety
- Road Traffic/Environment Regulations
- Risk Assessments
- Principles of Operation
- Operation of Equipment
- Stability, Compatability & Fitting Procedures
- Operational Tasks
- Practical Operations
- After Use Checks
