The SFE training program was developed to satisfy the wood-procurement and harvesting requirements of the many SFI-certified wood purchasing companies in Michigan. SFE training consists of core (CT) and continuing education (CE) training.

The core consists of three days of training covering forest ecology, BMPs, MIOSHA awareness, silviculture, and a field day where many of the classroom subjects will be witnessed firsthand. An individual must complete all three days of training in order to be trained under the core program.

Each company must accrue four hours per QLP (Qualified Logging Professionals) training each year as well. CE programs are offered by the MSU Extension SFE program, the Michigan Forest Products Council, and other agencies and organizations with an interest and expertise in aspects of forest management.
