Timber Toolbox Website Series
The ‘Timber’ Toolbox series comprises three websites – Timber Toolbox, Timber Plus Toolbox and Sustainable Timber Toolbox. Each website comprises a set of resources for training and assessing timber workers in competencies from the Forest and Forest Products Industry Training Package (FPI05). In addition to a comprehensive coverage of the subject matter, they also contain a range of interactive learning activities and tasks which can be used as assessment exercises.
The competencies covered in the first two Toolboxes are relevant to timber industry qualifications at Certificate II and III level. The third Toolbox deals with two Certificate IV level competencies that have been approved as ‘Green skills’ units.
