brushcutter training courses

Brushcutters/ Trimmers

It is a legal requirement that any industrial user of a strimmer or brushcutter should hold a recognized certificate of training. The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations Act (PUWER 1998) requires employers to provide adequate training and to ensure that equipment is operated only by employees who have received appropriate training in their safe use.


Contour Training offer Brushcutter / Trimmer courses accredited by Lantra Awards, the UK industry standard. We offer 2 day courses (1 day for experienced operators), resulting in a Lantra certificate of competence for operating strimmers and brushcutters. We can arrange equipment hire and venues or we can visit you, as long as you have a suitable venue and equipment.


Contour Training can also offer several different Lantra Awards courses under the umbrella term Groundbased Arboriculture- including stump grinding and woodchipping- please contact us for further information
