Event Details

About:

This one day chainsaw safety course is designed for women. If you're interested in learning to use a chainsaw or looking to become more proficient and gain the necessary skills for advanced chainsaw use, this class is for you.

During the one day class, a trained chainsaw instructor will cover safety, maintenance, and basic operation. The class will start off indoors then move outside for lunch and hands-on practice operating chainsaws.

What to Bring:

If you have your own saw, please bring it! The best saw to learn on is the one you will be operating. Please wear long pants and plan to secure any loose fitting clothing, hair, and jewelry. We will have a working lunch on site.

  • Chainsaw - if applicable
  • Lunch
  • Long Pants
  • Gloves

For those who don't own a chainsaw, we will provide saws for you to use. We will also provide ear and eye protection and chaps.
