Training Services

NHLA Inspectors are available to train your inspectors on:

  • NHLA Rules
  • Grading accuracy
  • Recognition of individual species characteristics
  • Ability to upgrade lumber prior to shipment

NHLA Inspectors will instruct at your location optimizing the learning because the training is done on your lumber; with your equipment; at your speed and at your facility. Other company personnel such as: yardmen, sawyers, edgermen, buyers, sellers and office staff can also benefit from learning the basics of the NHLA grading rules.

In-house training is customized to meet the specific needs of your company. To schedule in-house company training by a NHLA National Inspector please contact NHLA Chief Inspector, Dana Spessert.
