Chainsaw Courses

Price: from £275 per person (+VAT), for a two-day course

Hush Farms offers HSE approved Chainsaw training courses in Devon, Dorset, Somerset and throughout the UK, for different skills and levels.

The legal bit: The law states that anyone who uses a chainsaw in the workplace must have proof of adequate training from a qualified person, to operate the machine safely, in appropriate conditions. Your training must also be periodically updated. This legislation applies to everyone – volunteers, employed or self-employed alike.

Chainsaws are exceptionally versatile tools, but they're also potentially very dangerous. Serious accidents can and do happen – so, even if you're using them for leisure, it's important to have proper training and to keep your skills up to scratch. 

Our Integrated Training and Assessment (ITA) chainsaw courses lead to a LANTRA Awards Certificate in Basic Training. While NPTC CS30, CS31 and CS32 certification can be arranged for an additional fee. We also offer chainsaw refresher courses so you can update your training.

We do our best to be flexible around your needs, so you’re welcome to come and enjoy the chainsaw courses at one of our East Devon sites, or we’ll come to a venue near you in the South West and throughout the UK. Plus, we’ll fit the course around your schedule – just let us know your most convenient times.
