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.
