    Training Summary

    Proper maintenance, personal protective equipment, and correct technique are critical components of safe chain saw operation. Council properties rely on chain saws to help clear trails, remove deadfalls, clear timber, and stockpile wood for campfires and heating buildings. This training outline provides local councils with the resources to train chain saw operators on council property.

    National camp standards require that chain saw operators be at least 18 years old and meet one of the following requirements:

    1. Be a professional forester.
    2. Be a certified arborist.
    3. Have received training in chain saw techniques from a Ranger section of National Camping School.
    4. Have written documentation of having other training in these techniques that is recognized by the state or federal government.
    5. Have successfully completed BSA Chain Saw Safety Training course, No. 20-136. (Successful completion of this training program achieves this goal.)

    Learning Objectives

    At the end of this lesson, participants will be able to:

    • Identify daily, weekly, and monthly required chain saw maintenance items.
    • Properly use personal protective safety equipment and clothing.
    • Start and operate a chain saw.
    • Understand felling, limbing, and bucking procedures.

    The course is free, but please sign up at the right.
