A 5 day training course with an independent assessment and certificate upon successful completion.

This is a hands-on course that delivers both practical skills and health and safety guidance as well as demonstrating that you and your employer have completed sufficient training to meet the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER). 
This course is a combination of both the “Chainsaw Maintenance & Crosscutting” and “Felling & Processing Trees up to 380mm” courses. 
Running over five days, you'll gain all the knowledge and confidence needed to work with a chainsaw safely and efficiently. Hands-on, practical sessions will then allow you to develop and hone your skills at cross-cutting, tree felling and branch removal.

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

From 1st September 2023, all applicants must complete the following mandatory e-learning module before applying for funding – Mandatory Unit: Health and Safety – Risk Management in Forestry and Farming
