A nationally recognised licence or ticket in chainsaw operation will assist you or your employees in gaining valuable job skills for the construction, landscaping or forestry industry. Start Training can help you to acquire new skills or update your existing skill set. Our Melbourne course will help you keep up to date with the latest workplace safety best practices in chainsaw operation.

Why You Should Take a Chainsaw Course

A nationally recognised accreditation from a chainsaw course can be useful to anyone wishing to work in the forestry, building and construction, plumbing, landscaping, gardening and property maintenance industries. Keeping your chainsaw skills current is also essential to those already working in the industry who wish to show current competence in chainsaw operation. Your ticket can be shown to WorkCover inspectors, employers and clients as confirmation that your skills and workplace safety practices are up to date. 

Why Keep Your Qualification Up to Date?

Every three years it is compulsory for a chainsaw operator in the forestry industry to be tested and re-issued with a chainsaw ticket to ensure their skills and safety knowledge are current. Most other related industries have adopted this best practice procedure. Start Training offers training to update existing chainsaw operation skills. We offer free retesting and additional training after you have completed your course. We can also provide a student welfare officer to assist you if you have some difficulty with language, literature or numeracy.
