Associate Certificate in Industrial Wood Processing - Online Information Session
June 15 from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm PDT
Are you currently an employee, supervisor, superintendent or mill manager in the North American lumber sector?
Join us at this special online info session featuring Mark Stock, Senior Vice President Human Resources and IT, Interfor. The next intake is in September 2021! (June 2021 is full).
The Associate Certificate in Industrial Wood Processing (IWP) is designed to prepare program graduates with the knowledge, critical thinking and technical skills to advance to supervisory positions within their current organizations in the North American lumber sector. The program is a valuable component of an on-boarding strategy for new employees without a background in industrial wood processing, as well as for any employee who has not received formal education in the field.
The program is designed to be completed by a cohort of up to 24 students over a 12-month period. The cohorts can be recruited from a single company, or can be a mixed cohort made up of students from a number of lumber companies. The participants are new or existing employees in the North American lumber sector and are sponsored by their employer.
This program was developed by Industry for Industry through a partnership between a consortium of lumber companies ( Interfor, Canfor, West Fraser Mills, and Tolko Industries ) and BCIT.
To support you and your continued education, BCIT is adapting applied learning in formats appropriate to the unfolding global situation. We want to make it easier for you to work towards your future goals and get the education you desire.
