Certification & Education

You need professional development whether you’re an experienced forester meeting new challenges or in your first job keeping up with changes in the field. SAF provides numerous professional development opportunities and also recognizes your commitment to continuing education. Continuing education credits can be earned through the Continuing Forestry Education, or CFE program, through educational workshops, seminars, conferences, field trips, video or phone conferences or even self-study.
  
CFE is a mainstay of SAF’s Certified Forester (CF) program, the most established forester credentialing program in the world. The CF credential recognizes those who excel at the stewardship of our nation's forest resources and set the standard for their peers.
