The future of the coast forest sector is bright and career opportunities in forestry look promising. Working in the harvesting sector of the forestry industry provides you with the opportunity to work outside in some of the most beautiful terrain in the world. By working in a harvesting environment, you become an important part of a team tasked with moving wood from the hillside to the end customer. This can involve roles in road building, falling, yarding and transportation.
The Fundamentals of Forest Harvesting Practices Program is designed to provide students with the foundation skills and knowledge required to work safely, productively and sustainably in a harvesting environment. The program content is based on competencies identified by the BC Forest Safety Council (BCFSC). The competencies were identified in consultation with industry subject matter experts and include the key skills, knowledge and attributes required for entry-level workers to have a strong safety philosophy and be successful.
