Forest contractor training and certification scheme

The NSW Government is committed to improving community confidence in the forestry industry as a sustainable and renewable industry.

In May 2018, the NSW Government announced $4.6 million to be spent over four years to support industry to develop a training and certification scheme, to improve the environmental performance of forestry contractors operating in native and plantation forests in NSW. The outcome of this was the development of the ForestFit training and certification scheme.

ForestFit was developed by industry and led by the Australian Forest Contractors Association (AFCA). The ForestFit project concluded on 30 June 2022.

Further information on the Scheme can be found on the AFCA website.
