FSC Forest Management Expert Course

Learn to read the mind of your FSC auditor - or become one yourself!

Our intensive FSC Expert trainings will equip you with the mindset and knowledge of an FSC auditor. Join our ASI accredited FSC FM course to fulfill formal FSC Forest Management auditor training requirements whilst gaining useful insight into the FSC FM system!

Our FSC Expert Course consists of two separate courses, one for Forest Management (FM) and one for Chain of Custody (CoC) certification. This registration is for the FSC FM course, which consists of an online part followed by five-day intense classroom training, covering the FSC standards and systems for Forest Management certification.

The online part of the course, comprised of five different modules which should be completed before coming to the classroom training*, requires approximately two to three days for completion. This part of the course is available immediately, even for non-registered participants.

Our standard classroom agenda is to be added. The FSC FM Expert course is conducted in English language. Please ensure that your language skills will allow you to fully engage in presentations, group exercises, discussions and examinations.
