There are three different types of courses available:

* COURSES FOR OCCASIONAL USERS (LANTRA ITA courses)

These two courses combine training and assessment, and candidates who achieve an acceptable standard will be awarded a Lantra Awards Certificate of Training which is valid for 5 years. More Details ...

* COURSES FOR PROFESSIONAL USERS (LANTRA course leading to QCF level 2 and level 3 assessment - including units which used to be called CS30/31)

This route is intended for someone who anticipates seeking contractual work in professional forestry, amenity or arboricultural activities which is likely, immediately or at some future date, to involve felling trees over 200mm (8") in diameter, and/or aerial tree work. More Details ...

* REFRESHER COURSES

These courses are available for candidates who already hold a recognised certificate, but who wish to refresh their skills. Some companies require their employees to update their skills after a length of time. HSE recommend a refresher course every 3 years for occasional users and 5 years for regular users.
