SRUC offers a range of chainsaw operator training courses leading to City & Guilds NPTC Certificate of Competence or Lantra Awards Certificates of Training.
These courses will be suitable for you if you use a chainsaw as part of your job role. Depending on the nature of the work you are doing you may wish to consider which level of certification you require.
We would always advise that you check with the contractor or land owner you will be working with before booking a course to ensure you have the correct certificate.
Please speak with a member of our training team if you are unsure.
Our courses are delivered regularly from our SRUC Campuses but can also be delivered on customer premises. We offer a range of introductory courses, progression routes and chainsaw refresher training. If you do not see the course you are interested in on this page, please contact us to discuss your requirements.
