Continuing Education Programs
The Connecticut Professional Timber Producers Association sponsors workshops throughout the year to meet the growing demands of the forest products industry. All programs are approved by the CT DEP Division of Forestry for CEU credits for CT Certified Forest Practitioners. Visit the Calendar on this website for updates on classes and programs.
Community Outreach Programs
The Association reaches out to the non-forestry community to improve the image and understanding of the forest products industry. We accomplish this through involvement in school programs, participation in agricultural fairs and events and sponsorship of educational programs. The Connecticut Professional Timber Producers Association is also the proud sponsor of the Connecticut Log A Load for Kids Campaign which raises money annually for the Hartford Connecticut Children's Medical Center.
