Employees for Timber and Forestry Industry

Saturday, November 14, 2015


One of Alabama’s largest employers is looking for new workers, and a $297,000 grant announced by Governor Robert Bentley will help that happen. The Appalachian Regional Commission grant awarded to Auburn University at Montgomery will help establish an entry-level certification program for people seeking careers in forestry.  AUM will team up with the Alabama Forestry Association to develop a certification program to help high school students qualify for jobs in the forestry industry immediately after graduation and assist people already employed in the industry with advancement opportunities. The program will combine on-site instruction with web-based materials.
