SAWW Training is an umbrella organization that promotes safe and efficient chainsaw use, both professionally and recreationally, and oversees the development of training curriculums and the training of trainers. SAWW Certified Trainers are experts in their field. They are required to have extensive sawing experience, to participate in a rigorous certification process, and to refresh their skills in an annual training course. Certified Trainers stay current in regulation changes, and in safety and utilization techniques.
