This course covers a mix of maintenance and practical skills. Candidates who already hold CS30.1 (NPTC Chainsaw Maintenance Cert.) only need to be assessed on ‘on-site preparation and use of the polesaw’. For candidates without a chainsaw certificate, the first half of the course covers generic risks, safety, engine maintenance, sharpening etc. The second half of the course covers site safety, safe working distances, pre-start checks and various pruning cuts. An NPTC assessment is optional and should be requested at the time of booking. Following successful completion, attendees can go onto study other related forestry and arboriculture courses.
