The FSC Expert Course consists of two separate courses, one for Forest Management (FM) and one for Chain of Custody (CoC) certification.
This registration is for the FSC FM course, which consists of an online part followed by five-day intense classroom training, covering the FSC standards and systems for Forest Management certification. More specific information on the classroom part can be found on the course agenda.
