Everything is on TRAQ - 15th Oct 2013


The first Tree Risk Assessment Qualification (TRAQ) courses are about to begin in Australasia and Singapore.


October 16 sees TRAQ kicking off in Auckland, followed by Wellington then across the Tasman to Brisbane and onto Singapore. It will be a busy few weeks for TRAQ trainer Terry Flanagan.

TRAQ is a tree risk assessment program created and administered by the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA). It is a vehicle whereby individuals engaged in the arboricultural industry can expand their knowledge through education and training in the fundamentals of tree risk assessment in order to promote safety of people and property; enhance tree benefits, health and longevity; and minimise/manage identified risks trees may present.

Terry Flanagan, current president of the ISA will not only be delivering the course but he will also be completing the teacher/trainer requirements for New Zealand local trainer Mark Roberts. To maintain the quality and validity of the programme, the ISA have a strict trainer apprentice programme. TRAQ trainers are required to undergo teacher training, demonstrate advanced knowledge of tree risk assessment, sit in on at least two TRAQ courses then co-teach. If Mr Roberts passes, he will be the first Australasia based TRAQ trainer.
