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.
