Chainsaw Repair Advanced Practitioner (C.R.A.P)
Chainsaw Repair Advanced Practitioner Course
We are now offering a Chainsaw Repair Advanced Practitioner course. Taking faulty chainsaws to be repaired at repair shops and dealers can be costly, frustrating, and inconvenient. Often parts and labour costs are prohibitive and, unfortunately, sometimes it makes more economic sense to purchase a brand-new chainsaw. This course is designed to address the most common reasons for saws to be repaired by a third party and give existing chainsaws a longer service life.
Who is it suitable for?
The C.R.A.P. course is for chainsaw users who currently hold a recognised basic chainsaw qualification and wish to explore the workings, rebuilding, and repair of chainsaws to a further level.
What will be covered?
Standard topics will include:
- Carburettor: replacement, cleaning, replacing seals and diaphragms, cleaning of jets where applicable.
- Cylinder head: removal, inspection, rebuild.
- Piston: Inspection of piston, rings, and change and re-fit.
- Timing Settings (non-computer chainsaws): High, low and tick over optimization.
- Porting chainsaw discussion of the practice and theory.
- Exhaust: Maintenance and replacement.
- Filters: Oil and fuel, change and cleaning.
- Clutch replacement.
Other topics will be covered dependent on the saws being maintained/repaired
How long is the course?
The course is delivered over one day 9 am-4 pm with two breaks and a lunch break, (tea, coffee and biscuits provided).
Where does the course take place?
The course is held at our purpose-built workshop near Weald Village – Sevenoaks in Kent.
What do you need to bring?
- Appropriate tools for maintaining chainsaws that you may have.
- Chainsaw to be inspected/repaired (see below).
- Workshop clothes, gloves, ear defenders (for using air lines), safety goggles and steel toe cap boots.
- Food and drink for the day.
What do I need to do prior to the course?
Normally a learner will join the course and work on the demo Kingswood chainsaw with your instructor. Sometimes you can bring your own chainsaw for repair/inspection on the course. Please contact the office to see if this if this is appropriate, you can then liaise directly with the instructor to diagnose the problem with your chainsaw and hopefully repair it. Due to the nature of the course you will be responsible for sourcing the relevant parts required to do this and we can not accept responsibility for any damage caused to your own chainsaw.
What is the cost of the course?
The cost of the course is £168 inc VAT . Please ring the office on 01732 811 162 or send an inquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org
We prefer candidates to hold a CS30.1 (NPTC Unit 201) qualification to attend this course.
