Land-based & Rural Trades

Tyro offers a comprehensive range of NPTC and Tyro certificated courses for the forestry, arboriculture, landscape and horticulture industries – from chainsaw operations, safe use of pesticides, to ride-on mowers, tractor driving, diggers and MEWPs.

In addition to chainsaw training being delivered in Skipton and the surrounding area, Tyro can also offer chainsaw training and assessment throughout Scotland, the rest of the UK and Ireland.

Whatever your skills development needs, Tyro will endeavour to provide appropriate training and advice, at the right level and the right time. In addition to our regular NPTC and Tyro courses for individuals, we will be happy to discuss bespoke training packages, tailored to the needs of individual businesses and their employees.

Your Staff may be eligible for FREE Qualifications

We are still able to offer fully funded Level 2 units for your employees to work towards a full Diploma, thanks to an initiative by the European Social Fund.
