Background Forestry Training in Fiji is embedded in the, 1950 and the revised 2007 Fiji Forest Policy which directs the Conservator of Forests (Head of Forestry in Fiji) to train subordinate staff in appropriate knowledge and skills relevant to forestry work. The first training program was offered in 1969 with the aim of building the capacity of forestry officers to work for the Government of Fiji for the activation of Forest Policies and Legislation. The practice has continued through the provision forestry technical training to school leavers for the award of Forest Technician Certificate. Graduates are recruited into the Civil Service as Forest Guards. (no keywords)
