Forest Technologist Professional Standards
FPRC is in the process of developing national professional standards for forest technologists. The standards will be used for accrediting post-secondary programs and credential assessments for individuals trained in forest technology.
FPRC is currently collecting feedback on the standards.
Standards and Feedback
Professional practice standards provide an overall framework for the practice of forest technologists. Each standard describes, in broad terms, the professional expectations of forest technologists and apply to all forest technologists, regardless of area of practice.
The standards provide the framework for forest technologist practice in Canada by:
describing performance criteria for forest technologists,
defining scope of practice to the public and other professionals,
providing a framework for professional practice*, and
providing a foundation to all aspects of the regulation of the profession including registration, practice standards and professional exams.
Forest technologists applying for registration as a professional must meet all the measures within the standards.
FPRC is seeking feedback to ensure that the forest technologist professional standards are representative of what is required for entry to practice in the workplace today. FPRC encourages participation in evaluating the standards and completing the form to submit meaningful feedback.
The deadline for submissions is January 31, 2023.
If you have any questions on the process, please contact FPRC directly.
