    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
      125


    2. Felling small trees, maintenance and cross-cutting
      225

    We can also arrange assessment for the more advanced courses. Prices available on request.
