Certification and Assessment

Successful completion of either course will qualify the trainee for a LANTRA certificate of training (provided the required standard is met).

This is recognised by the Health and Safety Executive as adequate evidence of a chainsaw user having received appropriate training.

However, many employers (such as the forestry Commission, National Parks etc) and most insurance companies require a chainsaw operator to have an certificate of competence. This is gained by a rigorous assessment by an appointed assessor.

Following completion of one of my courses, assessment can be arranged.  

    The cost of assessment is

  1. Basic chainsaw maintenance and cross-cutting

  2. Mainteance, cross cutting and felling trees up to 380mm diameter

  3. Felling trees over 380mm diameter

  4. Dealing with individual and multiple windblow trees
