The regional wood councils are a great place to start when wanting to find out about career opportunities in your area. They have strong connections with the industry, relationships with local training providers, and a good understanding of career options in the area.
The forestry companies are a great place to talk to when considering a career in forestry. They can tell you what they're looking for, and many of them have direct links to training providers which helps build a career path for those in training.
