A Not-For-Profit Association

The Woodland Trainers Association is a not-for-profit Association consisting of members from industry, educational institutions and government who share a common interest in training and development of  workers in the forest industries of Canada.

The association’s purpose is to provide a central organization to assist members in the design and implementation of training programs. WTA has been training across western Canada in Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba. We are recognized in different bodies such as cities, towns, and fire departments. We work with wildfire crews for Alberta through the Hinton Training Centre. We were also  linked with Portage College, in Lac La Biche.

Recognized & Accredited

WTA recognizes CEU credits and is a member of ISA (International Society of Arborists). Woodland Trainers Association chainsaw courses are recognized by Occupational Health and Safety and WCB here in Alberta and other provinces. We work with firefighters, utilities, gas and oil and others that accept us as the standard.

If you’re looking for educational forestry training, we provide the resources to learn everything from chainsaw, to brush saw, to being a forestry supervisor, or reading dangerous trees, we have the DTA program for you. We are also available to come to your school or event and speak to your group about what we do and provide more information on our courses.

Become A Member

Membership in the association is open to anyone from government, industry or an educational institution who is directly involved with the development and implementation of forestry training programs.
