This course is designed to provide Chainsaw Operators with the required knowledge and skill to perform their appointed tasks safely.
Operators will receive instruction on the safe operating procedures, inspections, maintenance, equipment and applicable regulations to ensure compliance and safety when operating such equipment.
Participants who are registered in CHO-01 training, will be required to complete an additional practical component to obtain their certification. This applies to all equipment operator courses and is completed at your work-site location. This practical component is not required to occur on the same date as the theoretical (in-class) component.
This practical assessment is performed on site due to the requirement to ensure the participant is competent in operating, inspecting and maintaining the specific model they will be using in the workplace.
If the participant is currently un-employed or if a worksite/equipment is unavailable for the practical assessment, please do not hesitate to contact Paramount Safety Consulting Inc as we will be happy to assist you through this process. The practical evaluation must be booked through Paramount Safety Consulting Inc. and travel charges may apply, please contact the office at 905-661-7233 for more information.
Participants who have previously completed the prerequisite CHO-01 Operator course or equivalent and if the training is less than six months past its expiry will not be required to partake in the practical evaluation (unless otherwise required by employer).
These experienced participants must provide proof of previous certification upon arrival to the course. Failure to provide proof of valid certification will result in the requirement of a practical evaluation completed at the participants work location.
We encourage all participants to dress comfortably, however Paramount Safety Consulting Inc. strives to maintain a professional learning environment. Therefore, to uphold this standard and ensure all participants are able to partake in the required training activities, we ask that all participants wear work appropriate clothing such as denim/work pants with clean shoes.
All other learning materials will be provided; however, participants may choose to supply their own paper pad/note book for notetaking.
