Read important message: Here is where we stand within Gov. Little’s ‘Stay at Home’ Order.

Here is an update on what the ALC-Idaho Pro-Logger Program advises for those working on their 2020 accreditation.
First, if you or your company was accredited as of Dec. 31, 2019, you have until Dec. 31, 2020, to accrue the 12 credits needed to maintain accreditation.
At present, we are planning to reschedule our logging first aid and safety classes as soon as is practicable and safe to do so, taking direction from our federal and state governments and medical experts. We are hopeful that we can reschedule later in the year, allowing sufficient time to get the OSHA & logging safety required training completed and that other classes, workshops, and events will come back online in time for completion of CE credits for 2020.
As we watch this COVID-19 crisis unfold, we are planning for ‘what if’ scenarios. At this point, we are optimistic that we’ll be able to resume our normal activities, including logger training.
In the meantime, logging contractors and individuals that were accredited as of Dec. 31, 2019, remain accredited for the entire 2020 year and should be able to operate as we’ve done it this way for well over 10 years now. Additionally, contact the company you are contracting with to see if that company has any flexibility within their SFI/FSC program.
The biggest challenge – at this point – is likely for those companies and individuals who were not accredited and needing accreditation to go to work. Our advice to those in this situation is to talk to the company/entity you hope to work with to see what arrangements of flexibility might be available.
Every day brings new information about the virus and about its spread and the seriousness of the situation becomes more in focus. Here at the ALC, we are trying to minimize the spread amongst our logging and hauling communities and our staff and look out for everyone as best we can with the information we have at this moment.
Please call the office if you have questions or email our Idaho Pro-Logger Program Coordinator at julie@idahologgers.com.

Thank you! Stay healthy and safe!
