Forestry Mandatory Skills Common Core courses and on-site worker evaluations are available from qualified Workplace Safety North (WSN) staff and WSN-approved trainers. This training is available for both logging and non-logging (other industries) sectors.

  • Mechanical Harvesting Equipment Operator (MHEO)
  • Forestry Pit and Road Construction Equipment Operator (FPRCEO) 
  • Introduction to Professional Chainsaw Operation (IPCO)
  • Introduction to Professional Cable Skidding (IPCS)
