FISA Refresher Training - Important dates and updates

11 May 2015

FISA Chainsaw Refresher Training has been available since October 2013 - important dates for attending a chainsaw refresher course once registered and on future refresher requirements.

  • For those contractors already registered with FISA for a chainsaw refresher course, a cut off date of Friday 30th October 2015 for course completion has now been put in place.

If you are registered, but still to attend a FISA Chainsaw Refresher Course, please contact Graeme Hodgson on 07747 038200 or by email  training@ukfisa.com to arrange a date and location for your course.

Other information regarding when refresher courses are required:

  • What do I need to do as I approach 5 years after taking a ground based chainsaw qualification?

It will be required that you will have attended a refresher course, or upskilled to a further unit,  prior to the cut-off date of 5 years from attaining the qualification. It will be your responsibility to ensure you remain compliant.

  •  What do I need to do as I approach the 3/5 year term from my last FISA refresher course?

It will be required that you will have attended a new refresher course, or upskilled to a further unit,  prior to the cut-off date of 3/5 years from the original FISA refresher. It will be your responsibility to ensure you remain compliant.

 

All of these requirements will come in to force on the 30th October 2015.
