Forest Supervisor Training

Supervision is critical to the safety of forestry workers. Based on the input of forestry supervisors across the province, the BCFSC offers three courses that provide participants with skills and knowledge to help them oversee workers effectively.

These courses are suitable for new or existing forest supervisors. There are no prerequisites, and you can attend any or all courses. These courses are available in English only. Participants will receive a certificate of completion for each course they finish.
