Here at Drivelink Training we understand that you want to make the right investment in your work, and that's why we can help you at each stage, helping you to progress at each stage of your career.
If you want to become a climber then we'd recommend that you start by completing the chainsaw maintenance and crosscutting course, then taking on the felling and processing trees up to 380mm course.
With these courses successfully completed then you can work your way up through the aerial course, safe in the knowledge that your pre-requisites are all in place; starting with the climbing and aerial rescue course, then the aerial cutting and finally the aerial rigging course once you have gained some experience.
Many of our clients do not wish to climb, and may work in forestry, local government, NGO's, golf clubs or just be private individuals that want to learn how to use a chainsaw safely.
We offer the foundation courses: chainsaw maintenance and crosscutting as well as felling and processing of trees up to 380mm, but can also provide the more advanced courses such as felling and processing of trees over 380mm (dealing with 'medium' and 'large' felling techniques), emergency treeworks, dealing with windblown trees, and assisted felling.
To help you with your training and assessment, or just for background information, Drivelink Training has created a number of freely downloadable documents; so whether you want to get hold of the 131-page Guide To Chainsaw Maintenance, or grab a copy of the revision workbook, or just view the T&C's, you'll find it all here.
