Independent Assessment - Practical test and one to one verbal questioning

This qualification is about the maintenance of a chainsaw and cross-cutting trees at ground level. Chainsaws used in aerial and ground work are covered. This work will be carried out in a workshop or a woodland environment. Cross-cutting operations will include cross-cutting timber under tension in the form of fallen branches, tops, tree sections, severed uprooted stems, horizontal stems, or any timber in a similar situation.

This City & Guilds NPTC course is usually taken in conjunction with 002004 - City & Guilds NPTC Level 2 Award in Felling and Processing Trees up to 380 mm, in which case both assessments are taken on the same day.

All independent assessments are undertaken on a separate day, a few days after the training.
