Powered Pole Pruner Course
Competence in Powered Pole Pruner Maintenance and Operation
We can offer this as a Lantra 1-day competence course for experienced users – and if the candidates have chainsaw qualifications.
For those that are novice users, the course is run as a Lantra 2-day course.
As with general chainsaw training, the Powered Pole Pruner Maintenance and operation course covers a mix of maintenance and practical skills.
The first half of the course covers generic risks, safety, engine maintenance, sharpening etc. The second half of the course covers site safety, safe working distances, pre-start checks and various pruning cuts.
The Powered pole pruner course and certification is a requirement of PUWER – the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations. Powered pole pruners are often referred to as polesaws.
The integrated assessment is divided into 2 compulsory parts:
- Maintenance of the powered pole pruner
- On-site preparation and basic pruning
Candidates must successfully achieve all assessment activities, unless otherwise specified.
