The Arboricultural Association is authorised by the Society for the Environment to offer Registered Environmental Practitioner status to its Technician (and above) members.

REnvTech registration sets Environmental Technicians apart from others working in their field. It establishes proven knowledge, experience and commitment to professional standards, and enhances career prospects.
