Ecosystem Workforce Program's Curriculum
The goal of this curriculum is to create an educational resource that is practical, flexible, and helpful to hard-working, dedicated, lifelong learners in the forest/ecosystem management industry. We recognize that while forest workers have lots of skills to share, they must also be continually updating and diversifying their skills to be competitive and competent in this evolving industry. As such, we have created a curriculum that has three core topic areas:
• Science for Ecosystem Restoration and Enhancement
• Technical and Safety Knowledge for Ecosystem Restoration and Enhancement
• Business Development and Management for Ecosystem Restoration and Enhancement.
