Important changes have been made recently to the training, assessment and certification within the United Kingdom’s forestry and arboriculture industry.

These changes reflect a complete revision of the National Occupational Standards to accommodate the real needs of the sector.

ABA Training and certification meets the International Occupational Standards. The learning outcomes which are assessed to obtain ABA certification have been recognised as equivalent to the UK’s National Occupational Standards assessment criteria.
