This allows the ability for candidates to move at their own pace when training, but also addressing multiple scenarios that Arborists come across when removing limbs in a controlled manner.

Description

Chainsaws are dangerous tools when used at ground level, which is why it is essential that the proper training is acquired before using a chainsaw at height whilst using a rope and a harness.  This course is suitable for you if you are working in any of the following industries: Arboriculture, Forestry, Woodland Industries, Local Authorities and Conservation. 

This course is intended for those who are already experienced in climbing trees using work positioning systems and who are experienced in chainsaw use, including felling small trees up to 380mm. 

This course is not appropriate for persons under 16 years of age.  You must be physically fit and not suffering from vertigo or similar conditions, or on medication that could affect your safety and those around you.  Chainsaw users should be particularly aware of the potential hazards of being cut by the saw, hit by the timber and exposure to noise and vibration. 

A top or rear handled chainsaw with guide bar appropriate to timber size should be used. 

Duration of training will be one day.
