Funding for Training in Tasmania

with No Comments

We encourage all Tasmanian forest and timber industry workers and their employers to access the Training and Skills Development Service (TSDS). This funding is available across all sectors: Harvesting and Haulage, Forest Growing & Management, Timber Manufactured Products, Timber Merchandising, Pulp & Paper Manufacturing, Wood Panel & Board Production and Furniture. It provides the opportunity to support workers develop new skills and to gain formal recognition for skills they have already gained.

Funding is available for training that meets the following criteria:

  • training that is of benefit to the Tasmanian Forest and Timber Industry;
  • that is relevant to current and/or future job roles in the forestry sector;
  • and provided by a registered training organisation (RTO).

Forestry Tasmania is one of many organisations who have accessed the service. Read about their experience by clicking the links below.
