Chainsaw Course

Chainsaw Operation and Maintenance

Gain confidence in how to use and maintain a chainsaw safely.


This accredited training session will provide users with confidence in how to use and maintain a chainsaw safely. The session provides practical skills and for safety reasons, bookings are limited to 6 participants per session. Payment will be arranged with booking confirmation. Participants will need to bring their Unique Student Identifier (USI) or, if they don’t have one, their driver’s licence or Medicare card, which we can use to get the USI for them. Participants need to be wearing long trousers and closed in shoes (preferably steel caps). We do supply steel capped boots for the cutting practical, if participants don’t have their own. All other safety equipment is provided and sanitised before each use in line with GrowSmart Training COVID policy. Chainsaws are supplied for the training, but participants are encouraged to bring a chainsaw along to service and use.

Course venues listed in schedule below may be subject to change due to COVID restrictions and participants will be notified of any changes.

Upon request, in-house training sessions can be provided on workplace premises to suit corporate clients. Please be in touch to arrange.
