The first complete nationally certificated timber programme in 25 years it offers learners three key learning programmes: Foundation, Intermediate and Advanced.

BCT trainers, company timber specialists, company training managers and feedback from past learners have developed the programmes.
The highly practical programmes are offered for all staff as one-day workshops held at sawmills, specialist timber merchants, production mills and truss plants.

While aimed at all timber products the programme has been designed to allow greater study of panel products, laminated products and engineered products.

Learners will examine the grades, finishes and match them to end use and look at potential add on sales.
