Overview

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.

At this point in time the courses are not available on a one-off basis. They are delivered sequentially, as part of the Associate Certificate. One-off offerings of the courses can be organized through a single company offering by contacting SOCE Industry Services at 604-456-1012. The participants are new or existing employees in the North American lumber sector and are sponsored by their employer.
