CS41 Dismantling and Rigging Course
NPTC unit CS41 – 3-day non-Lantra course
CS41 – This 3-day Dismantling and Rigging course covers the art of using craning points in the tree to lower branches down instead of dropping them. The trunk can also then be lowered down off itself so that the risk of damage to objects under the tree is avoided. Dismantling training involves some theory, including working out the weight of timber sections, safe configurations of equipment, choice of craning and climbing anchor points, and an understanding of the safe working loads and capacities of various items of equipment. The practical aspects of dismantling training include various methods of branch removal, topping out, chogging down and speed-lining.
This CS41 Dismantling and Rigging course run over 3 days, prepares the candidate for the NPTC assessment CS41. Candidates are expected to remove 3 branches, then climb a pole on spikes and remove several sections – some thrown, some pushed off on a hinge, and some roped down.
At the time of writing there is currently no Lantra material for dismantling training, so we at Kingswood have written our own course, which has been outstandingly successful.
Pre-requisites for this course:
NPTC 201/202/203 – CS30/31
