What is the difference in the pricing options for the scoping surveys for arborists

A. The course contents and resources are the same for both options. On completion of the course you can either receive a certificate from Lantra or from BCT. To receive the certificate from Lantra, they charge £25.50 per person which is included in the price. Alternatively you can complete the same course and receive a certificate of attendance from BCT which does not require the additional fee to Lantra.
