City & Guilds NPTC Certificates of Competence are life long qualifications, however refresher training by the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) is recommended to keep your skills & knowledge up to date and ensure you have not picked up any bad habits!
For machinery operations, including chainsaw & aerial tree work, the HSE recommends in INDG317 Chainsaws at Work that refresher training takes place every three to five years. Refresher Training is recommended every 5 years for regular users or 3 years for occasional users.
