Wood Education and Resource Center Leads Development of Online Training Information Exchange System

— filed under:

PRINCETON, WVa—The U.S. Forest Service’s Wood Education and Resource Center is overseeing development of an online Training Information Exchange System. This system will help individuals from primary and secondary wood products industries locate continuing education training opportunities, such as workshops and short courses that meet search criteria. System users can either search for available training opportunities in the database or use the e-mail notification system to be automatically informed of appropriate workshops and short courses.

The system matches training preferences identified by system users with available training offerings. Participating training organizations can register available courses online through the Online Training Services Registry System. A notice will be sent to users once a match has been made between training needs and an available course with additional information about course content, contact information, and related data.

An initial version of the system will be available by mid fall for testing and comment by potential users. The system is planned to be operational by early 2008. For more information about the Training Information Exchange System or to leave a comment about the system, please contact Fred Lamb at fml195@vt.edu.

The Wood Education and Resource Center is located in Princeton, WV, and administered by the Northeastern Area State and Private Forestry unit, of the Forest Service in the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The Centers mission is to work with the forest products industry toward sustainable forest products production for the eastern hardwood forest region. It provides state-of-the-art training, technology transfer, networking opportunities, applied research, and information. For more information, visit www.na.fs.fed.us/werc.
