Event Details

This is a two-day INTENSIVE Arborist Rope Splicing Workshop. Hand(s) ON!! Limited to 20 students.

Hosted at Nugreen Equipment, Hardware sponsored by TreeStuff, Rope Fiber Sponsor: Yale Cordage!

20 ISA CEU's and 20 TCIA CTSP credits upon completion. Students keep everything they splice and all the hardware for the course. See the Fids&Fibers Facebook page for tons of photos regarding hardware and fiber.

A splicing tool kit will be available for each student to purchase. If you have your own tools.. great! Splicing kits are sold at cost to students. The cost will be between $85 for the kit and will include everything you need to complete the workskhop and BEYOND! Additionally, premium tools & supplies will be available for purchase.

General course outline: We'll be covering rope construction, fiber characteristics, class 1 vs class 2 fibers, the history of splicing and splicing tools and talking in-depth about labeling, break strengths, testing methods and arbor industry practices and special needs for our equipment. We will cover hollow-braids, 16-strands, double-braids (both rigging lines and 24-strand climbing lines).

We'll be making a wide variety of products... about 10 in all. (Depending on time constraints and the depth of discussions). Expect a 12 to 14 hour day on Saturday and another 10 hour day on Sunday. Fids&Fibers is an amazing value.. but you only get out of it what you put into it.. so come prepared to work, listen, learn and have fun...

The costs: The workskhop is $350 US. We are adding $10 for food/snacks/water to make the workshop $360 US.

The splicing tool kit is $85 US, payable in cash or paypal at the workshop (optional.. in case you have your own tools already)

For simplicity, we're setting it up as NO REFUNDS... but if something comes up, contact Mark and we'll try to work something out for you...

This is going to be an amazing time... It is rare to attend a splicing workshop with a BREAK TEST machine IN THE ROOM! :-) The opportunity for learning is going to be SPECTACULAR!!! Hope to see you there...

Yours in Trees, Mark & Marten
