For you, life happens waaaay outside of cell range. Forestry experiences some of the most unique hazards available in the workplace today. From heavy duty equipment, extreme temperatures, high voltage power lines, all the way to animal encounters…you folks see it all. Not to mention that “logging” as a career, has been around since the dawn of time, and its never been for the faint at heart. But when you started…was there forestry training?
Have you ever thought what is necessary in the event of an incident? Most of the time, you work WAY out of town….
Whether you are referring to production, commercial or industrial forestry, the training needs remain relatively constant. Online forestry training addresses what you expect to see in most forestry scenarios. We have assembled forestry training using a 4-level curriculum of 16 compulsory & 20+ optional elective courses to help meet the needs of the industry. We’ve touched on topics that are specific to Forestry training, and some that are fundamental to the workforce in general. You’ll see in depth “Wilderness & Animal Awareness” training, chainsaw use & safety, and other programs that really dig into many of the challenges you’ll face as a worker in the bush. Don’t short yourself, or your workers when it comes to surviving on the job.
Keep in mind, that for courses based on “Equipment Operation” (ie: Forklift), “Life Safety”(ie: Body Harness) or “Life Preservation” (ie: Standard First Aid) Worker competency must be proven before a person can be considered fully trained. Competency evaluations are attached to each course requiring one in our database. Just be sure you have a competent person evaluating. For more information on competency, you can give us a call or read up on it, as described by the COAA here…
