Modernising Units for a High Tech Forest & Wood Products Industry

posted in: News | 0

This case study by the AISC is about units of competency that were recently developed for forest harvesting operators. Two new units were developed for the use of on-board optimisation systems and computers in mechanical harvesting. Ten existing units were also reviewed and updated to reflect technological change and to incorporate best practice principles in forest harvest operations.

This work was carried out as part of the Forest Harvesting Optimisation Project, led by the Forest Management and Harvesting Industry Reference Committee, with secretariat support by Skills Impact and ForestWorks.
