In a single day, you can earn your Forest Operator’s License. This is mandatory for all Timber Harvesting Operator Licenses in Victoria, so gain the qualifications you need to work with ease. The two units in this qualification are conducted as two 4-hour courses on the same day, meaning you’ll walk away with your license straight away.
‘Timber harvesting’ refers to the harvesting of any tree, or part of any tree, for the purpose of processing and selling. The governing body for foresting, Forestworks, requires you to successfully complete these two units before you will receive your Forest Operator’s License. Working in this sector will take you outdoors in your chosen industry as a safe and efficient operator.
