I am basically a newbie when it comes to a chainsaw. I can cut tiny trees smaller than a foot but I am not an expert.

I am only 22 and I want to go try out this course.

Professional Chainsaw Operation
The participant will learn how to service and maintain a
chainsaw and will understand the principles of basic safe
chainsaw operation. The participant will also learn proper felling
and delimbing techniques. The participant will demonstrate
felling, delimbing and bucking techniques and sharpening and
maintenance procedures.
Module 1 Chainsaw Sharpening and Maintenance
Module 2 Safe Chainsaw Handling
Module 3 Felling and Delimbing Techniques
Module 4 Field Practice

I think those chainsaw newbies out there should look into this

Looks interesting...where is that being offered? Is it a standardized course or just a local thing?

Seems to be just a local thing

Because I called last year and nobody knew what was going on

I called again. Left a message with someone.. My called wasn't returned

So this time, i'm making sure i'm getting my course that I want/really need

It is important for anyone who plans on using a chainsaw to be knowlegeable in using and maintaining a saw. I have seen some horrible accidents that could have been easily avoidable had someone used some common sense. Climbing too, it takes a lot of practice, and the right equipment to do it safely.

I think you should definitely take the course and learn as much as you can before tackling the big trees. And when you get stuck and have a question, let me know.
