RFS one day training courses are designed to meet the needs of new and novice woodland owners and others who wish to further develop their existing knowledge and skills in many aspects of forestry

Royal Forestry Society

Each course has clear learning objectives and will include a mixture of lectures and practical activities. Locations have been selected where the principles being explained can be demonstrated in the forest. 

Small group sizes will make it possible for the learning to be informal, personal and highly rewarding.

Delegates will be issued with an RFS Certificate of Attendance following each course.

Our team of instructors are all acknowledged experts in their fields and dedicated to forestry education.

Woodnet have completed a partnership project with architects, carpenters and woodwork trainers to support carpentry vocational skills training.

Supported by the Leonardo Lifelong Learning Programme Woodnet participants visited several European countries to discover the differences, and many similarities in timber construction and wood decoration.
