Bridge Training Program The CIF recently became the official delivery agent for four standards of the OPFA Bridge Training Program. The new Bridge Training Program improves access to competency‐based training and assessment modules for elements of the 35 demonstrable competency requirements associated with the Canadian Federation of Professional Forestry Associations’ 2008 Certification Standards for the Profession of Forestry in Canada. Courses related to Standards 1, 2, 5 & 7 for internationally trained foresters as well as domestically trained foresters from non-accredited institutions are now available. These courses will help foresters acquire the skills needed to practice professional forestry in most of Canada. The next series of courses will begin January 15, 2018 Learn more about the program here.
