Online Training


Since so much in the industry has changed lately, NAWLA has recognized that its members and the industry are looking for ways to learn about current issues.

Webinars have been particularly effective lately, as companies have cut back both their travel and training budgets. The webinars allow employees to get the information they need without having the time and expense of an onsite program. It also has enabled companies to have multiple employees to attend, which always helps with the takeaways and long-term implementation of the knowledge.

Note that most NAWLA webinars take place starting at 9 am Pacific / 10 am Mountain / 11 am Central / Noon Eastern Time.

Check out NAWLA's upcoming webinars and past webinars below to get involved!

Upcoming Webinars

Structural Lumber Grading 101 - Introduction to the Basics

Presenter: Lon Siebert, Renewable Resource Associates, Inc. 
Thursday, Feb. 23 | 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. CST
Cost: Free for NAWLA members/$50 for non-members 
This presentation is designed to help lumber traders better understand the products they deal with. Lon will focus on how to "read a piece of lumber" and appraise and measure abstract structural characteristics - such as knots, the various forms of "slope of grain" decay, breaks and compression wood. Basic concepts that could not be discerned or assimilated by simply reading any lumber grading rule will be presented with the use of photographs of actual lumber characteristics.
Register today to take advantage of this complimentary webinar for NAWLA members.
