This Train the Trainer program targets people who want to be trainers in the safe use of chainsaws. This 5 day program is an intense period of training that focuses on leadership and training techniques and skills, with a specific focus on the Arboriculture Canada 1 day course – Chainsaw Safety & Cutting Techniques.

Employing highly skilled and competent trainers in your organization can be difficult. Being a trainer can be one of the most exciting and fulfilling occupations on the planet. However, if trainers are missing some critical knowledge and skills, it can be a major struggle and create a high stress environment on your team.

The secret to success is to learn from the masters in the arena of training in the field of arboriculture – people who educate and train in hand’s on skills areas repeatedly around North America. At Arboriculture Canada, we believe that high level training for key trainers may benefit many organizations by helping them meet their human resources and budgetary goals.
