SAWW Chainsaw Training: Level 4

November 8, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Prerequisite: Completion of Level 3 training.

Participants in Level 4 SAWW training will refine and build upon chainsaw proficiency skills realized in Levels 1, 2 and 3. This course is certified through the Safety and Woods Working (SAWW) training program and is part of a four-level series designed to increase safety and the efficiency of chainsaw use. Participants in Level 4 will spend most of the day in the field utilizing techniques to operate chainsaws safely, comfortably and productively while applied to challenging situations. This course is dynamic as we can cover greater vocational specificity based on participant interest and questions.

Topics covered include demonstration and review of techniques (per request of participants), planning and executing difficult tree felling, limbing, bucking, while working at production level.

 Hands-on training gives participants the opportunity to fell, limb, and buck at least one tree. Participants must be prepared to work and bring their own personal pretective equipment, chainsaw(s) and tools for maintenance.

Pre-registration required. Space is limited.

Fee:   Riveredge Members: $120/person |   Non-Members: $135/person
