FISA has now finalised the basis of its manager competency training and is pleased to launch its Forest Works Manager Training Course.
The day long course has been designed and developed by industry managers, contractors and experts. The course will be delivered by Forestry Training and Consultancy Services Ltd at a number of venues across the country.
The course will provide attendees with a knowledge and understanding of site safety management including individual and organisational responsibilities based around the industry guidance document ‘Guidance on Managing Health and Safety in Forestry'.
Currently attendance is not compulsory, however it will be seen as a strong demonstration of commitment to manager competency development and should be strongly encouraged throughout the industry targeting primarily those holding the Forest Works Manager positions and or Main Contractors. Ultimately we would see this course moving towards compulsory status.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to undertake this course – noting:
How many people require training?
In which region of the country do you wish training to occur? (General i.e. “South Scotland” or “South West England”)
Do you or your organisation have a venue which is suitable for training? (must be able to seat 14+ people in comfort with all the usual facilities)
Please email email@example.com if you are interested in attending a FWM course - we will get back to you once dates are scheduled.
Each course can accommodate up to 12-16 attendees. Attendance is 9.30am - 4pm. The intention is to have a mix of managers and contractors on each course to optimise learning and knowledge exchange.
Cost for FISA member attendees on FWM course is £90 + VAT. Non FISA members will be charged £165 + VAT.
