Course Description

The value of “rules conscious” employees is a more carefully manufactured product, a more profitable yield from the log, and a better sense of the value of the lumber being handled. This three-day workshop will include a thorough study and explanation of the NHLA Rules Book, emphasizing the basics of hardwood lumber inspection.  This popular workshop gives yardmen, sawyers, edgermen, sales and office staff, as well as management level personnel an introduction to lumber inspection. This course is designed as an introduction and a refresher course of the NHLA Rules. The course will cover the fundamental of hardwood lumber inspection and will give the attendees the opportunity for hands-on application of the rules.
