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 which we can arrange.

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

    The cost of assessment is

  1. Basic chainsaw maintenance and cross-cutting
    165


  2. Mainteance, cross cutting and felling trees up to 380mm diameter
    295

  3. Felling trees over 380mm diameter
    165

  4. Dealing with individual and multiple windblow trees
    165
