Assessment Centre

‘Helping you to achieve individual excellence’

Scott Fraser Training & Assessments (SFTA) is a City & Guilds Approved Assessment Centre

SFTA have met strict quality assurance requirements to ensure that together with our assessors, all clients have access to a fair and professional assessment.

We can organise a range of NPTC Forestry and arboriculture assessments. 

Assessments take place at our site in Lamberhurst, near Tunbridge Wells.

An independent NPTC assessor, who will provide the opportunity for you to demonstrate your technical knowledge and practical ability, carries out each assessment. The assessor will follow the guidance in the Assessment Schedule. This can be downloaded from www.nptc.org.uk or contact us and we can send you a copy. 

Although assessments can be booked independently of any training, we strongly recommend a course is undertaken to ensure up to date knowledge of the skills required for a successful assessment.
