All Chainsaw courses cover maintenance of the chainsaw and are both training and assessment courses, with a certificate at the end.

Maintenance and Cross cutting – This 2 day course is for anyone who is required to operate chainsaws for crosscutting only. It covers protective clothing and safety features of the chainsaw, maintenance including engine, chain and guidebar, fuelling, starting and testing chainsaws and cross-cutting timber.

Felling Small Trees – This 3-day course enables trainees to fell small trees up to 380 mm. It also includes take down of hung up trees using hand tools.


There has been some confusion surrounding the separation of the Maintenance & cross-cutting from the Felling component. We offer a 2-day Maintenance & cross-cutting course and a 3 day Small tree felling course, this can either be done as a 5 day course or separately. If the trainee who is registered for the 5 day programme does not reach the required standard for the felling part of the award, but achieves the standard for the Maintenance & Cross-cutting component they will receive a certificate and Skills ID card for this part.

Felling medium Trees-This 3 day course is for people who have attended the basic courses and covers maintenance before practising felling trees up to 1.5 times guide bar length and de-limbing including breakdown of large hardwood crowns. It progresses to felling 2 times guide bar length and takedown using hand winches and take down aids.

Dealing with individual windblown trees is a two-day course for trainees who have attended basic chainsaw courses and wish to learn how to deal with windblown trees.
