About the certificate program:

The Certificate Program in Mass Timber Manufacturing and Construction is a modular training program in mass timber manufacturing intended to help workplace and professional learners acquire the skills needed to understand and be successful in today’s mass timber manufacturing sector. Most of the course modules are designed primarily with manufacturing businesses in mind, but others involved in the design and construction of mass timber buildings may also find them useful.

Many of the courses are web-based or have at least some supporting content online. This is so that as many learners as possible can access the courses without needing to spend long periods away from the workplace. Some modules are available through our community college partners so that driving distances to classroom-based courses are minimized. Participants can take one or more modules based on their individual interests or learning needs, or can complete the entire program to earn the Certificate qualification.
