What people have said about us and our courses
"I recently undertook chainsaw, pruning, pole saw and tree felling training with Peter Tutt (A Plus Training Solution). I have gone through a lot of other training facilities during the last two years and I can honestly say, Peter delivers incredible, good quality training! He is passionate, very experienced and very much up to date with developments in his industry (this really shows in his courses). Peter did everything to provide the absolute best experience and to make sure techniques were mastered."
Eliot Besson, Tree Pruner - Streetscapes Department: City of Canning
"While working in the WA Utilities sector (Western Power) for 4 + years I have taken countless training courses across many platforms. During this time my training with you (A Plus Training) was by far my favourite and most memorable training experience. The material was delivered in an enjoyable environment and prepared at the highest standard. Your course provided an excellent balance of theory, maintenance, and hands on training with safety always at the forefront. I recommend this course to anyone looking to gain confidence and upgrade their chainsaw skills on a private or professional level.
Chris Eagar, (Formerly) Asset Systems Analyst - Asset Performance, Western Power, Jandakot WA
Thank you for a great day's training. I learnt so much about the business end of the chainsaw and got really good practical experience too. I am very glad I didn't just head out to the farm with my new Stihl, having no clue how to really use it. I learnt so much about the importance of safety and I never appreciated the amount of maintenance needed either. Good environment today and a super bunch of guys.... I can't believe training isn't compulsory with these things - they are more dangerous than the motorbikes we both love riding! I will put the lessons learned into practice over the coming months and then be back for the felling course. Thanks again!"
Nigel Richardson, Marketing and Interior Design Manager, Warwick WA
"Three of us from Nature Based Play Pty Ltd attended Peter's chainsaw training course and all benefited enormously from it. We ranged from very experienced to a fairly nervous novice but all left the course feeling confident that we had the necessary information and skills to undertake chainsaw work safely and efficiently. Peter is a very effective teacher and communicator, he is also very knowledgeable and thorough in his 'hands on approach' to learning. I highly recommend his chainsaw training course. Peter is both passionate and highly practical in his approach.
Terry Farrell, Architect and Director Nature Based Play Pty Ltd
"Excellent courses Peter. You're a true professional!
As a career North American EMT/Fire Fighter I have had chainsaw training in multiple countries. I can say without a doubt that the courses I have undertaken with Peter have always been beyond all expectations, exceeding training conducted even in fire school. Not only does Peter teach you exactly what you need to know to be safe, but he encourages you to be proficient, professional and confident with the tools and techniques of the trade"
Andrew Black, Forrestdale WA

"Grasstrees Australia would like to thank A Plus Training for the fantastic chainsaw course conducted with our guys. The course was spot on for our needs. So much so, that with the maintenance, sharpening and cutting techniques gained during the course, we have significantly reduced use (and cost) of bars and chains, increased our productivity and improved the quality of our end product. That is a win-win-win situation for us!! Thanks Peter!!"

".....Re the training that Peter Tutt undertook. The response and general comments from dealers and our sales team has been excellent. Peter did a very good job and was well received by all who attended. Peter in my opinion is a very good educator ............... I would be more than happy to have him back for more training in NZ."
Alan Petrie (Formerly Husqvarna) Auckland New Zealand
"I recently attended a great Chainsaw Operator Safety seminar conducted by A Plus Training Solutions. I would like to congratulate Peter Tutt on the thorough and professional presentation on the day. I would consider this course to be an essential part of being part of the chainsaw industry and would recommend it to any person involved in the industry. Informative, practical and interesting."

"...Very well put together. Easy to understand. Great chainsaw course! even though I have been in the industry for 6 + years I still found that I walked away having learned something."
Roy Sloan Kondinin
"Thank you for a most enjoyable and instructive course. I learned a lot of good, useful stuff. Since a chainsaw has the potential to be as dangerous as a fire-arm I believe that in a perfect world, a person should not be allowed to buy, hire or operate a chainsaw until they have undertaken a course such as yours. How I haven't had a serious accident over 20-odd years of self taught / school of hard knocks use is little short of miraculous!"
Brian Mollan Gooseberry Hill W.A.
"Information in this course was great and Peter put it across in a very easy way to understand. It was very enjoyable. All the best for the future."
