Many HMA members and industry associates have inquired about additional training opportunities for their employees. HMA’s partner in education, the Northcentral Technical College (NTC), has answered with a one-time, 5 week Hardwood Sawmilling & Drying Certificate Program.
- Set for July 6 – August 7, and open to all hardwood industry stakeholders, this in- person, hands-on training opportunity will be conducted in a seminar-like setting at the College’s Wood Technology Center of Excellence, in Wisconsin.
- Upon completion, certificate holders will be able to scale, grade and value hardwood logs; breakdown logs and edge/trim lumber to maximize profits; inspect lumber; and dry lumber from start to finish using a steam kiln, DH kiln and vacuum kiln. Program specifics and online application are available here. Application deadline is June 19.
Additionally, NTC is again offering its 12 week Hardwood Manufacturers Certificate Program. Visit www.HMAmembers.org for all of the details.
