Our Mission

Is to train Australians to safely use chainsaws in any environment.

We use nothing but the best, Shindaiwa.  These chainsaws are made tough, for Australian conditions. Shindaiwa are quality chainsaws, made for professionals.  We have found these saws are perfect to provide the best training we can.

We supply all equipment for use on the course.

WOW!!!! Just wanted to thank you SO MUCH for the chance to take part in Rod Miller’s chainsaw course which had funding organised by TRC Disaster Management. It was one of the BEST COURSES I have ever done. I know it would have taken a lot of work to get this off the ground – Congratulations on a great job!!! ”
