This introductory course is necessary for laying down the foundational understanding required for all our other timber industry courses. It is aimed at anyone in the timber industry from sales to production.

The courses are highly practical and to maximise the actual content learned included a wide range of quizzes, samples, tasks and group working. Becuase the courses are delivered in-house, they can be tailored significantly around the questions and areas of interest of the delegates.

The courses are designed for 8-20 delegates. More than one company can provide the delegates if required.
