Timber Academy free training courses

Metsä Wood's Timber Academy was established in 2001  and is  open to all levels of merchant customers, from the branch level to the boardroom.

Taking place at Metsä Wood's custom built training facilities, the Timber Academy is run as a two day course. This is split into manageable sections, covering: grading and identifying timber quality, the environmental aspects of timber production, timber products and applications, storage, grading and presentation, measurement and calculations, health and safety, and making the most of linked sales. The course is punctuated with regular breaks and there is an evening ‘team’ exercise to help delegates relax as they learn

As part of the course, delegates also visit Metsä Wood's production facilities. The course culminates in a second written test to help build on the understanding gained throughout the two day course. The course is free to attend, however travel and accommodation are at your own expense. For more information, contact
