This course is designed to introduce the woodchipper operator to the basic maintenance and operation of the machine.

What topics will it cover?

Many people operate woodchippers in the Forestry and Arboricultural industry. They are responsible for many minor injuries and a few major ones, generally caused by a lack of understanding of how to look after or operate the machine.

We cover engine maintenance, air filter, fuel filters and belts. Then we look at cutting mechanisms, how to fault find and replace blades. Finally we learn how to safely operate the machine to chip prepared branches.

How long will the course take?


One day training including integrated assessment.

Is there an exam?

There is an integrated assessment carried out during the course by an instructor/ assessor.
