Lantra Ground Based and Aerial Refresher Courses
AFAG 805 – Update or refresher training
In general, proficient tree workers who regularly practice their skills in the presence of colleagues and employers will require training less often. However, advances in technology may justify specific update training, and certain trained skills such as first aid and aerial rescue will need specific, regular practice and updating.
There is a risk that when tree workers spend time on other tasks, their proficiency can lapse. This, along with the introduction of new techniques, brings with it a need for refresher and update training at various stages in the tree worker’s career. This occasional further training should add value to the tree worker’s growing skills and experience and provide a structure for staff development.
For chainsaws, INDG317 Chainsaws at work recommends that refresher/ update training takes place every three to five years. This can often be incorporated as part of training for more advanced skills. It is important to record and plan for refresher/update training and the employer must record the structure of the training received by the tree worker based on the type of work undertaken. 35 For most machinery operations, including chainsaw and aerial tree work, AFAG recommends that recorded refresher/update training should take place at least every five years. However, where a supervisor identifies specific weaknesses in an operator’s abilities, this will need to be addressed, irrespective of the date of previous training.
