Prepare yourself to work successfully in mechanized timber harvesting operations!
Learn to safely operate common logging equipment such as chainsaws, cable skidders, log loaders, feller/bunchers, and whole tree harvesters. You’ll conduct an authentic timber harvesting operation on Paul Smith’s College land in the Adirondacks, tour regional logging operations and sawmills, and interact with professionals from all aspects of the forest products supply chain. New York Logger Training certifications are awarded upon completion.
Program cost is $1,500 for the four-week session, inclusive of all tuition, fees, room and board.
This program is made possible by the NY State Department of Labor and the Workforce Development Institute. Special thanks to NY State Senator Betty Little for her support.
