The training provides you with an overview on how to accurately determine the origins of wood products and show evidence that these products originate from certified forests or other trusted sources. The approach will be systematic and easy to understand in assisting participants to implement a company’s FSC™ CoC system in line with the requirements.

Upon successful completion of the training participants will:

  • Understand the FSC CoC and the requirements
