On Wednesday, inmates at SCI Rockview were working outdoors, but not in the way you might think. They were doing some hands-on training with tree climbing and arbor tree services. SCI Rockview is located at the foot of Mt. Nittany and one day, most of the inmates will go home, and finding a job is one of the hardest things to do, but this new Arborist training is changing that. The training is perfect for anybody interested in becoming an Arborist. Students in the class say the hands-on part is most critical. Organizers say that these skills are high in demand.and that there are two things coming out of this program. It provides training to the inmates, but also helps the facility to complete pruning and tree removal work on the property. Organizers say they have already started planning another session in October.
