Chartered Foresters develop new online learning platform

Building on the success of previous online courses, Cumbria Woodlands has launched Canopy Learning. It is critical that organisations, woodland owners and professionals have access to current training and this platform uses a mixture of video, audio and written resources.

Director of Cumbria Woodlands and Chartered Forester, Neville Elstone MICFor, said:

“This is a new era for training in the forestry sector, we’ve dabbled in distance learning but it’s time to up our game. Canopy learning represents a step-change in how we approach training and how we can deliver quality education at scale”

Course Author and Chartered Forester, Martin Glynn FICFor CEnv, said:

“The Ancient Woodland Restoration courses and materials on Canopy Learning provide an essential resource for everybody involved in the management of woodlands. Ancient Woodlands are a precious and limited habitat and making the right decisions regarding their restoration is crucial. Canopy Learning supports making those right decisions by sharing the knowledge of experienced forest managers and woodland owner”

Canopy Learning currently has three free courses available:

  • Ancient Woodland Restoration (CPD)
  • Ancient Woodland Restoration (Higher Education)
  • Ground preparation for Woodland Creation
