The Forest Practices Authority

Training

Overseeing the training of Forest Practices Officers is a function of the FPA under section 4C of the Forest Practices Act 1985.

Although training undertaken by the FPA is focused on Forest Practices Officers, and other people with training needs to meet the requirements under the Act, course places may occasionally be available to others.
