Course Summary

Current legislation requires those whose work involves the use of chainsaws to be adequately trained and qualified. The training course offered by Derby College equips the candidate to undertake an industry compliant ‘Certificate of Competence’ assessment.

Entry requirements

You will need to be at least 18 years of age. Ideally you should have some experience of the industry.

Course Content

The course will cover:

  • The knowledge and practical implications of the legal requirements concerning the use of a chainsaw
  • The knowledge and practical skills to safely and efficiently undertake basic chainsaw maintenance operations
  • The knowledge and practical skills to safely and efficiently undertake practical cross-cutting operations

How will I be assessed?

External assessment leading to certification will take place as soon as possible following the successful completion of the training course. NPTC assessments are organised through Derbyshire Landskills.

Are there any additional costs or specialist equipment required?

All specialist safety clothing can be provided by the College, for which a hire fee will be charged.

Please note, however, that equipment is not available for hire for assessments. You will therefore need to have other arrangements in place for your assessment.

Candidates may use their own chainsaws on the course providing that they comply with current legislation.

It is recommended that candidates do not specifically purchase specialist equipment prior to the course. During the training, advice on the purchase of all specialist equipment will be offered by the course instructor.

What can I do after this course?

Derby College offers a range of one-day, weekend and evening courses relating to Arboriculture and a wide range of other land-based topics - please see the Derby College Part-time Prospectus for a full list and details.

Andy Smith

Bound for Australia

Former Arboriculture student Andy Smith has his sights set on using the skills he learnt at Derby College in Australia.

Andy, who has family in Australia already in the profession, decided to come back to College to gain new skills and turn his life around.

I had been in a pretty dead end job so decided to go back to College and loved every minute of it. The course is great and the tutors are really knowledgeable. I have started the process of moving to Australia as they need people with my skills and I hope to be there in a few months.
