The 51st annual Hardwood Dry Kiln Operator’s Short Course is scheduled for May 24-27 at North Carolina State University’s Hodges Wood Products Lab in Raleigh, N.C.
“This short course will provide practical knowledge about how lumber is effectively kiln dried and scientific background on related wood properties and processes,” according to the course description. “It will have value for the beginner as well as experienced kiln operators and with supervisors, sales, and marketing personnel. Instruction, by university faculty and industry experts, will be both in the classroom and through hands-on lab exercises using our 1,000-bf, steam-heated dry kiln. This is a hands-on course where you will learn by hearing, seeing, and most importantly, by doing.”
