Want to host this session? 
For this session we require an indoor class room that can accommodate 10 participants and has access to a projector with screen and an outdoor woodlot with trees that can be felled and used to practice cutting techniques. We ask the host facility to provide a Pole saw for the training to review cutting techniques.

Here's what people say about this course: 

  • "I had such a great time I wish it was longer!"
  • "I am glad we did the refresher training to correct the bad habits I had picked up"
  • "Wish we could of had an extra day - it was great!"
  • "Good to know that the instructor keeps himself up to date on what he is teaching and applies current up to date knowledge in his practices too!"
