This is a perfect introduction to expertly handling and maintaining a chainsaw.
The course is also ideal if you’re looking to work towards a regulated qualification or a Licence to Practice – both are available with our Level 2 Award in Chainsaw Maintenance and Cross-cutting.
We work closely with the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) to ensure both the course’s content – and the materials we use – are in line with current safe working practices.
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.
And 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.
Worth noting: Chainsaws are powerful and potentially dangerous tools, so you’ll need a minimum level of fitness to be able to complete the practical side of the training.
