The module-based training focuses on "Developing a Thinking Sawyer" and emphasizes risk management, human factors, and sawyer safety. Forest Service sawyers can still attend approved training courses until the new program is finalized.
A Sawyer Certified at the A level may operate a saw in the least complex situations and must be under
the direct supervision of a B or C Sawyer. This certification applies to either chainsaw or crosscut use and
can be for bucking only for those sawyers not needing to fall trees
