High performance forestry contractors are key to the success of the sector.

Mondi Zimele, with support from the Department of Trade and Industry, has launched a contractor development training initiative to support high potential entrepreneurs to develop and grow their forestry contracting businesses.

The intensive seven-month course will be launched in Richards Bay in November 2016, with tuition costs for qualifying candidates being covered by the program.

Applicants for the course are now being sought. The closing date for submission of applications is 9 October 2016.

Candidates will be exposed to industry-specific business study material through lectures, workshops and case studies.

The course is not confined to existing Mondi contractors or potential contractors  – it is open to any qualifying candidates. Forestry contractors involved in harvesting, silviculture, transport or other forestry support services are key contributors to the sector. The program is designed to support the sustainability and effectiveness of forestry contractors, thus adding value to the sector as a whole.

Minimum requirements for admission to the course include:-

•    A post matric qualification in business management and/or forestry operations.
•    Minimum three years relevant work or business management experience.
•    Candidates must be computer literate and have access to a computer.
•    Candidates must be able to attend lectures on alternate Saturdays from 9 am to 3 pm, in Richards Bay.

More information and application forms are available on www.mondizimele.co.za; or send a request to: application@ess.co.za.
