3 Day Program Schedule

General Information

The course is comprised of three one-day sessions at a cost of $85 per person for the entire 3-day course.  To be recognized as a Kentucky Master Logger, the participant must attend and participate in all three days.  It is recommended that you wear comfortable clothing and dress for current weather conditions.  Field activities that require minimal physical ability (mainly hiking in forested areas) are a part of the program when possible. 

The program will provide all participants with handout materials, pens or pencils, bumper stickers and after completing the program a Kentucky Master Logger Designation card and certificate.  There are informational quizzes given at selected times throughout the 3-days. 

The course times are from 9 am to 4 pm local time each day, and lunch will not be provided.  In most cases there are local establishments to dine at or you can bring a sack lunch.  Each program is limited to 50 participants.

Below is a brief outline of 3-day program.  In some cases the topics will be moved from one day to another due to sudden scheduling conflicts with instructors.

Day One:
Water quality laws and regulations, OSHA regulations and standards, Timber Trespass

Day Two:
Best management practices (BMP's)

Day Three:
Fatality review, chainsaw safety and directional felling 

Each program is limited to 50 participants.
The table below gives the current pre-registration number.
