The Academy will consist of classroom instruction in forestry concepts, logging safety, and basic business concepts specific to logging.  Field sessions will reinforce classroom training and provide actual hands-on equipment training and operation. 

Logging equipment operators operate heavy machines, like skidders, feller-bunchers, loaders, dozers and graders.
