The Appalachian Trail Conservancy's Sawyer Certification Program teaches Trail volunteers how to safely operate a chain saw to remove downed trees and to cut materials needed for Trail projects.
We offer free training courses, free personal protective equipment (PPE), and reimbursement of first-aid/CPR certification costs for MATC member trail maintainers. For others, the fee is $130 without free PPE and FA/CPR reimbursement.
The Maine Appalachian Trail Club has set the 2012 Chainsaw Safety Workshop schedule as follows. Please keep an eye on our website (www.matc.org) for updates to this schedule.
The Fall workshop will be for both new certification and re-certification. The re-certification course will be one day only, the Saturday of the noted weekend. The one-day re-certification class (Spring and Fall) is for Sawyers with a current Level B certification.
If your current certification will expire in the next twelve months, or has recently expired, we urge you to sign-up for a workshop and renew your credentials. If you have not taken advantage of this valuable training and wish to use a chainsaw on the Trail, then join us for a fun and worthwhile two days.
Space is limited. Please contact Craig Dickstein at
