NYLT Cancels Remainder of Spring Workshops 

April 20, 2020 - Rensselaer, NY.  On Wednesday, March 18, 2020 the New York Logger Training, Inc. Board of Directors, along with various partners and cooperators, developed a flexible plan to assure that certifications and recertification procedures are in place while Coronavirus restrictions were still followed. Workshops were initially cancelled through the end of April, with a provision for re-evaluation by April 20th.   Since then, although the forest product sector was deemed "essential", the NY PAUSE act has been extended through May 15th (at the time of printing). Therefore, after much consideration, the NYLT Board has decided to cancel all workshops for the remainder of the spring season. We are currently planning on a typical Fall schedule if the restrictions allow.

In addition to the schedule modification, NYLT, Inc. Board has made the following decisions:

  • NYLT will grant a reprieve on expiring certifications and recertifications through 12/18/2020, to allow participants time to utilize training in the Fall Training Session which will begin in September 2020.
  • NYLT will allow up to three credits towards recertification to be acquired online.

We have worked with the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) and third-party certified member companies and landowners to ensure that flexibility and discretion will be used in the requirements for harvesting on Certified lands and securing certified timber and fiber through 12/18/20 as well as delivery standards at yards.
