The course also allows you to understand and interpret the 10 principles and 56 criteria of FSC forest management and their local adaptation, and to interpret the requirements for qualifying as a High Conservation Value Forest.

The course offers insights into the origins, structure, management and purpose of the FSC, as well as its national initiatives. We also analyze and interpret the FSC forest management principles and criteria – and how they can be adapted locally – and review the certification process.

Lead auditors with many years’ experience in performing international audits in this scheme provide the tuition.
