Please join SCA and North East Woodland Training for a two-day certiﬁcation course in chainsaw use, maintenance and safety.
The ﬁrst step in the use of a chainsaw is proper training. All personal working with chainsaws on projects with our federal agency partners must have completed the nationally approved classroom and ﬁeld training for general saw work or specialized uses as developed at the USFS Missoula Technology and Development Center. There are several proﬁciency levels that have been set down by the USFS. Material covered in this course includes chainsaw safety and maintenance, and general saw work (such as bucking, limbing, and the ﬁrst basic steps in felling) or specialized uses (such as construction, maintenance, and fencing).
These certiﬁcations expire 3 years after the date of issue. The certiﬁer has full authority to impose restrictions on apprentice and intermediate sawyers as deemed necessary.
This is a two day course that will be held at sites near the Bear Brook State Park residential facility. Instruction will be done by David Birdsall of Northeast Woodlands Training.
Registration closes Dec 6. Limited to 10 participants
