We are proud to announce we have added a new online training module to our Ark Pro Logger training offerings, providing training participants with a convenient and engaging way to complete core and continuing education training for 2021.

This new video was produced for loggers with input by loggers to ensure the content is relevant to what timber harvesters are experiencing on the job and at the site.

This new training offers credits for Timber Harvesting & Transportation Safety (TH&TS) as well as checks the box for Logger Continuing Education (LCE) for participants who have met their core module training requirements.

As was the case during COVID, our new online/video-based training module requires paid registration, and each fee is per device. That means an individual pays $25.00 plus processing fee to participate, OR a company can register several employees to watch the video together on one device for one $25.00 plus processing fee.

Information and online registration and processing is available via Eventbrite through this link:

This is the website of Arkansas’ award-winning logger training and education initiative and the distinction earned by those logging contractors and crew members that have graduated from the program. Since its inception in 1995, more loggers, landowners and forestry professionals have participated in the Ark Pro Logger program than in any other training program of its kind nationwide.

The Ark Pro Logger training initiative is administered by the Arkansas Timber Producers Association (ATPA) and was developed for loggers by loggers. The program exudes a collective commitment of the region’s timber harvesters to high standards of professionalism and represents a voluntary adherence to rigorous principles of sustainable forestry and natural resource conservation.

Company representatives, consulting foresters, and forest landowners have password-protected access to the online database participants use to confirm and monitor completion of training modules. While graduation from Ark Pro Logger does not constitute a professional endorsement or warranty of an individual or logging firm, it does serve as an industry indicator of a timber harvester’s commitment to this widely upheld training effort.

Additional information and specific requirements of the Ark Pro Logger program can be obtained through this site by selecting the Training menu above, or by contacting ATPA Director of Logger Training, Arnold Hameister toll-free at 1-888-403-2232.
