All classes have the same format, tailgate talk in the morning, cutting after lunch. The trees get bigger and more challenging at each level.
Oscar 328 Band Mill, Husky 450, 372 (Clone), Mule 3010, and too many hand tools. :) I mill for fun and my mental health. NYLT Certified.

I ain't the woodcutter, but I can cut wood 'til the woodcutter gets here.

All classes have the same format, tailgate talk in the morning, cutting after lunch. The trees get bigger and more challenging at each level.
The difference for me was that the tailgate talk took just part of the morning for levels 1, 3, & 4, and the rest of the day was out in the woods, where participants too turns working with a chainsaw, while the rest observed and got pointers on what was going on. For level 2, we had a tailgate talk, but then spent the rest of the morning getting instruction in and doing basic maintenance on saws. The work in the woods for level 2 did not start until after lunch.

Well, you took yours with a different instructor/franchise and I am sure they all have slightly different approaches. Specific logistics, learning levels, number and depth of student questions, etc. all play into session length, I'm sure. To be honest, when i say "after lunch" I have no idea what time that was. I don't look at the clock. We may have eaten at 10:30 for all I know. I didn't really care. There was no wasted time.
