It’s back by popular demand! The School of Agriculture at the University of Manitoba is once again offering its on-line arborists course.
This on-line course is designed for students who want to learn at their own pace and on their own time. Access to a computer with high-speed internet is a requirement but special technology skills are not. The course runs from Monday, May 28 and ends Saturday, September 29, 2018.
Registration closes on May 18, 2018.
The Manitoba Arborists course covers tree biology, plant classification and identification, soil science and tree worker safety. Participants learn about proper tree pruning techniques as well as the issues that affect urban tree health, including environmental stresses and forest pests and diseases.
This course would be suitable for those interested in tree care as a hobby or as a small business. Upon completion of this program you are eligible to apply for a Manitoba Arborists Licence with the Province of Manitoba.
