Does working in the great outdoors in a physically demanding job appeal to you? Enrol in the Statement of Attainment in Chainsaw Operations - Basic Tree Felling and you may have the opportunity to gain employment as a Chainsaw Operator or Tree Feller. This course will give you competency-based training in the safe use of chainsaws for cutting timber and felling basic trees. You will learn to use a chainsaw in a safe and effective way to crosscut, rip, delimb and trim logs and felled trees, and fell trees classified as simple, non-hazardous trees relative to local timber size and distribution.
