10th February 2010: The First candidates recieve the new NPTC Award for chainsaw use
NPTC City and Guilds have been in the process of updating and re-issuing the series of chainsaw certificates of competence for the past number of months. Towards the end of 2009 the re-written assessment schedules were made public for consultation. During the beginning of this year there has been a period of crossing over to the new Awards, which include new subject areas for assessment. On the 10th of February Tree care ireland assessed their first candidates for the new NPTC Awards in Ireland. The assessment process is largely the same but the new layout is a little easier to work through and some of the new questions are welcome additions to the process of gaining qualifications with NPTC.
1st January 2010: Changes to our website for 2010

We have decided to implement a few changes to our website from the 1st January 2010. We are concentrating on making it easier and quicker to get the information you need and hoping to pack more rich and relevent content into the website too. The main changes will be as follows:

  • The home page has also changed allowing quicker access to the different services that we specialise in. All of the pictures in the body of this page are linked to our services.
  • The training pagewill give access to full information for each training course that we provide. We want our customers to be able to download this information from PDF files also. You will also be able to book and pay for courses online and receive discounts for doing so.
  • We have a new safety services page highlighted some our the professional and unique services we have developed in 2009 to assist companies with Health and Safety compliance and also help monitor tree health with a range of tree inspection services. This page is currently being constructed.
  • Our Assessments page has now become an Awards page due to changes in the NPTC City and Guilds qualifications. more info about these changes is available from NPTC and on our awards page
  • Our greatest success of 2009 has been the Free chainsaw workshops so we have changed our workshops page to a free course page
