The National Hardwood Lumber Association will begin offering an eight-week course, rather than its traditional 12-week program, for its Inspector Training School on Jan. 5, 2021.
“This is a permanent format change for the program, The NHLA said in a statement. “The decision to make the format change came after careful deliberation, surveys, member feedback and one-on-one conversations. Ultimately the Inspector Training School committee and the NHLA Board of Managers voted and agreed on the change at the recent NHLA Board of Managers meeting.
“This summer, the school conducted a seven-week beta program to determine the effectiveness of a modified curriculum and reduced time period. The 10 students in attendance achieved grade point averages on par with the traditional 12-week program. The goal of the NHLA Inspector Training School's new model is to educate more students and get them back to work sooner while increasing the students' value to the company.”
Tuition for the eight-week class is $2,625.
