National Hardwood Lumber Association to

Offer Hardwood Lumber Grading Training at Purdue University

 

The National Hardwood Lumber Association (NHLA) in partnership with Purdue University, is bringing two different hardwood lumber training programs to Indiana.

The Intro to Hardwood Lumber Grading will be held October 28-30, 2019. This is a 3-day course designed to give yardmen, sawyers, edgermen, sales and office staff, and management-level personnel an introduction to hardwood lumber grading.

The NHLA Inspector Online Training Program (OTP), will be held October 28-November 9, 2019. The OTP program is a hybrid of the traditional 12-week Inspector Training School program. At the completion of this program, the student will hold a certificate in Hardwood Lumber Grading.

The Online Training Program consists of 3 Modules:

  • Module 1 – two weeks of hands-on training at Purdue University.
  • Module 2 – online study. You have up to 1 year to complete this online learning module at the comfort of home or work.
  • Module 3 – a final three weeks of hands-on training in Memphis, and then graduation.

This is a great opportunity to maximize profits and reduce loss by having a NHLA trained lumber inspector on your company staff AND at a much-reduced expense and time lost in employee work than the traditional 12-week class held in Memphis.

The NHLA Inspector Training School has a proud and rich seventy-one-year history; graduating more than 7,500 students since its conception. No other institute has the history and expertise to successfully train your employees. But don’t just take our word for it…hear what a recent NHLA graduate had to say.

“The knowledge I have gained through the NHLA has helped our sawmill tremendously. Many people think they know the rules, but they don’t actually know what the book says. Learning the NHLA Rules has helped our sawmill identify mistakes that were costing us $130,000 to $180,000 a year depending on species.” – Grant Dorris, Alumni of ITS Class 188

How much money can we save you?
