NPTC 201/202 (CS30) Chainsaw Maintenance and Crosscutting Course
NPTC 201/202 (CS30) – 2-Day Lantra Course with NPTC Assessment.
The first day of this Chainsaw Maintenance and Crosscutting Course takes place in our workshop and takes the candidate through risk assessments, health and safety legislation, personal protective equipment and chainsaw maintenance (including chain identification and sharpening). The second day is spent in a local forest and covers site safety, pre-start checks, start procedures, correct stance and grip, cross-cutting, removing a trapped saw from the log and moving and stacking produce.
Following training, the candidate is then assessed by an independently appointed NPTC Assessor and successful candidates will receive an NPTC Certificate of Competence & NPTC Skills Card.
The NPTC Assessment is divided into 2 compulsory units.
- Unit 201 (30.1) – Maintenance of the chainsaw
- Unit 202 (30.2) – On-site preparation and basic crosscutting
