About Us

Land Based Training has been delivering specialist training courses, such as chainsaw, tree felling and wood-chipping courses, for more than 20 years. and has the expertise, resources and knowledge to help you, and your organisation, to succeed in meeting its training needs and legal obligations.

Founded in 1990, we are very proud of our very high reputation with our customers and within the industry for delivering exceptional training. Our aim is to provide our customers, both individuals and companies, with the very highest quality training and assessment services. The recent merger with Berkshire College of Agriculture extends our facilities and access to machinery so that we can offer even more benefits.

We provide a one-stop shop for land-based training needs – being both an NPTC assessment centre (number 051510) and LANTRA Awards training provider (number LANA01). Through our expert team of instructors and assessors we can accommodate most land-based training requirements. Our course schedule features regular chainsaw, tree felling and tree climbing courses. Our health and safety provision includes manual handling, working at heights and abrasive wheels training and assessment.
