Request for Expression of Interest – Training

The Western Silvicultural Contractors’ Association’s BC SAFE Silviculture Project is asking for expressions of interest from candidates interested in becoming contract instructors for adult training intended to reduce injuries and fatalities in the BC silviculture sector.

The areas of instruction include light truck resource road driving, power saw operation for silviculture, all terrain vehicle operation, crew supervision and project management. The WSCA is looking for instructors able to teach one or more of the listed curricula. Applicants should have a strong background in adult education or at least three years experience as a supervisor on forestry operations.

All applicants should be generally familiar with the conditions and characteristics typical of silviculture work in British Columbia. Successful candidates will be trained by the WSCA and asked to sign an instructor licensing agreement. They should be prepared to travel to various locations in the province to deliver training sessions. It is particularly important that applicants be available throughout this spring and summer to deliver training depending on the demand.

Applicants can send their resumé to admin@wfca.ca before 21 March 2010.

The WSCA gratefully acknowledges the financial support of the Province of British Columbia through the Ministry of Community Development.
