  1. Thanks for all the replies, eased my mind on the subject. I'm paying for all this off my own back so don't want to turn up for the course and get binned off for having the wrong helmet. I've got a Stihl helmet on order now so it should all be good.
  2. Sounds good, I will try to get one that works for both when I'm ready for the climbing/aerial rescue stuff.
  3. Thanks for the reply Jay, a chainsaw logo on a helmet did sound weird. I've scoured the info they gave me and the assessment criteria does talk about protection but it doesn't go into detail anywhere: "7. Appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) must be worn at all times by both the candidate and the assessor. All PPE used must comply with relevant AFAG guidance, industry good practice, Health and Safety Executive publications and current legal requirements in terms of specification and use."
  4. Hi all, I'm just starting to requalify in a few weeks and have been given a list of kit for the course. The college in question has said to supply, gloves, trousers and boots all with the CE chainsaw logo on them as below, which is fine, I have those. The list also says that the helmet should have the chainsaw logo too, but that can't be right can it? The logo in question is the one I've added below, found on something other than a helmet. The helmets I have seen for sale don't seem to indicate if they have the logo or not, just that they have the necessary EN 397 standards. I thought the CE chainsaw logo was compliance with EN 381 which deals with chain speed tests which surely does not apply to helmets does it? The college in question has not been much help when I've asked them to clarify the list. Any help greatly appreciated and thanks in advance.
  5. New member here, getting back into this sort of thing after a bit of a hiatus. I need to requalify on everything as it's all lapsed but hey ho, will be worth it I hope. Basically I'm out of touch with the industry so thought I'd jump on here and see what's going on. See you around the forum.
