Powerline vegetation control

Home > Delivery of training > Powerline vegetation control

Vegetation control around overhead powerlines is a highly regulated activity. All network operators have strict training requirements for workers engaged in tree trimming around powerlines, and most are now specifying competency accreditations from the Certificate II in ESI (Powerline vegetation control).

We provide training in the full qualification, plus many other units from the UET, AHC and FWP Training Packages that are specified by network operators for authorisation purposes.

We also offer training in the Close Approach Vegetation Control (CAVC) accreditation. This course has now been approved by the NSW Network Operators, and is made available to experienced HV aerial tree trimmers.
