About US

I just wanted to write to you and thank you once again for a truly inspirational two days with you.

The course has taught me so much about chainsaws and the ability to use them, but more importantly from a woman’s perspective, it has boosted my confidence and made me realise that I can achieve anything!

Loved it!.  Thorough, fun and well done!

This is one of the best courses I have ever done (and I’ve done a few, live-fire courses included)!  I would never have attempted to work with a chainsaw before because I had no knowledge or skills to undertake it.

Thank you so much.

Rod was brilliant.  Would love all my crew to have the opportunity to do this course with him.

Trusted and true workmanship.  The crew is prompt and flexible to meet the needs of the customer.

(Rod) has delivered high quality training to Indigenous Australians including people employed by them as trainees at Lockhart River, in the Cardwell/lnnisfail area in response to disaster relief resulting from Cyclone Yasi for the Cassowary Coast Regional Council and Terrain, for Outstation North’s indigenous training programs and to various community groups throughout FNQ with identified training needs.  Feedback on the delivery of this training has been consistently positive.

Great training, very competent trainer and all relevant to task. Rod did a fantastic job for me and my crew.

“practical, hands-on”

G’day Rod. I want to thank you for the very practical, hands-on course you delivered to us. I was originally trained by my father- in-law (also a professional timber cutter in NQ) some 40 years ago. It was great to have the opportunity to learn from his experience and one of the things that made your course such a stand out was your openness to sharing your extensive knowledge and experience with us. It was also great to have you standing beside us to ensure that we were practising and refining the techniques you taught while building our skills and confidence. I again thank you for your time and will now go and service my chainsaw (Course Participant from the Buk Guanaba Rural Fire).

As required, one on one instruction,

Thank you Rod.  I now have so much more confidence and self-worth. Etia
