Training Training Training


We offer training for chainsaw, wood fuel processing, tractor and forestry skills. You must supply PPE and your own saws(for chainsaw) but seek advice before spending cash from our Forest instructors. Courses are dependent on numbers and not to a fixed Schedule. Most training concludes with a test and Lantra certification. In most cases training, examination and certification will be free of charge to local residents.

We also provide experience with instruction for those considering forestry as a career or are awaiting a place at College. There are normally four or five trainees working with us at any one time. If interested contact our forestry manager and he will be able to advise you.

There may be times that you see other training in the forest and this will be by Ringlink and will be under our jurisdiction. Ringlink also go our processor training. Contact the forest manager in the first instance. forestmanager@aigas.co.uk
