19th September 2022 @ 12:00 am - 23rd September 2022 @ 11:59 pm


From first cuts to full-on felling, our five-day course will teach you all you need to know about using a chainsaw. This is a hands-on course that delivers both practical skills and health and safety guidance .

Overview in brief

The chainsaw is the go-to tool across any number of industries, from agriculture to woodland conservation.

It’s a powerful and portable machine, but also a dangerous one that requires regular maintenance.

There are a number of individual courses available to teach you the basics of chainsaw care and use, as well as specific skills such as tree felling and processing.

We’ve combined three of these to produce a comprehensive and intensive course that will save you precious time.

Running over five days, you’ll gain all the knowledge and confidence needed to work with a chainsaw safely and efficiently.

The finer details

Our course is run by experienced instructors working with small groups, so you’ll enjoy plenty of one-on-one training.

You’ll be walked through health and safety rules and regulations and learn maintenance tips and tricks.

Hands-on, practical sessions will then allow you to develop and hone your skills at cross-cutting, tree felling and branch removal.

  • HSE legislation and safety guidelines
  • Overview of the chainsaw and maintenance equipment
  • Maintaining the saw chain
