vermont logging

Basic/Pre-Level 1 (9/13, 8am – 4pm, tuition $200 pp). This is a course for people with no prior experience in handling a chainsaw. Topics include training in how a chainsaw operates, basic maintenance, and bucking techniques.  It is excellent preparation for Levels 1 and 2, which will be offered in subsequent sessions.

This is a field-based workshop and will be conducted in any weather conditions except for heavy snows, thunderstorms or high-wind conditions. Bring snacks, a bag lunch, water and a construction-type hard hat; be dressed for any weather conditions and wear sturdy work-boots.

If you are visiting us from out-of-state please check Vermont’s website https://accd.vermont.gov/covid-19/restart/cross-state-travel for regulations governing your visit.

Register HERE for Basic Chainsaw Safety for Adults. Please indicate how many people are in your party, and complete and return our Liability Waiver.

A “Backorder” notice indicates that the program is full and we will maintain your information on a Waiting List. Contact education director Christine Hubbard. for further information
