This course combines the three most popular chainsaw courses together – maintenance, crosscutting and felling up to 380mm – into one 5-day course, although a further day will be required for the assessment. The course is ideal for chainsaw operators who have some prior experience in operating chainsaws as it can be fairly intensive. You will need to allow a further day (in addition to the tuition dates) for the assessment.
