forestfit training and certification

Setting the standards for Australian businesses

ForestFit fosters continual professional development, increased business competency, operational compliance and risk management and industry sustainability by providing a pathway for national engagement with training and certification.  

ForestFit was jointly developed by industry in partnership with AFCA and funded by the NSW Government.  The ForestFit project has been underway since 2018 and concluded 30 June 2022.

The project successfully delivered on two major outcomes:

  • An industry endorsed training program for leaders, emerging leaders and owners of forest contracting businesses.
  • A certification for forest contracting businesses to deliver services in accordance with industry standards and regulatory requirements. 

The training program is aligned to the certification standards to provide the necessary support for businesses to successfully complete certification.
