Course Outline

The Cut materials with a hand-held chainsaw course cover how to carry out prepare and cut materials such as timber and polymer materials with a hand-held chainsaw. This course includes preparing for work, cutting materials, maximising volume and quality of recovery material, and basic operator maintenance and checks but is not as comprehensive in the servicing and maintenance procedures as what is covered in the Maintain chainsaws course.

The course involves cutting materials with a hand-held chainsaw in a variety of work settings including construction, saw mill, forest products factory, timber retail yard, or horticultural environment. The skills and knowledge required for competent performance are to be used within the scope of the person’s job and authority.

This course can also be completed in combination with the other Chainsaw courses listed on our site.
