A 2 day training course with an independent assessment and certificate upon successful completion.

This course is ideal if you're working on farms, in woodland, or in conservation. You'll learn all the theory needed to use and keep a chainsaw running safely, with key sessions covering saw chain, guide bar, and power unit maintenance. You'll gain hands-on experience of starting a chainsaw, run through all the pre-cutting tests and learn the skills needed to expertly cross-cut timber. This is a hands-on course that delivers both practical skills and health and safety guidance.

Please note that the outline, duration and image for each course are a guide only. Please contact the training provider for more information.
