About Logger Training Database

Logger training in Indiana started in the late 1980’s utilizing the “Game of Logging Program” taught by Soren Eriksson and coordinated by Gary Gretter. Since its inception, the program has been a partnership between the forest products industry and the IN Division of Forestry. The logger training program has trained hundreds of loggers to be safer and more productive while harvesting timber. Timber harvesting is ranked as one of the most dangerous professions in the United States. There is training for timber cutters, skidder operators, and it teaches logging crews practices that help to minimize their impact on soil and water quality.

Logger training has become more important as landowner expectations have grown for sustainable harvesting methods and as more land has been enrolled in different certification programs. On State forests and some classified forests there are standards that require the logging crew to have a minimum amount of industry-accredited training in order to harvest the timber. This database provides fast and accurate information on those that have taken the training and allows foresters and landowners the ability to confirm their training.

This database can be searched by the logger’s first and/or last name or by the company that last sent them to the training. The query will bring up all individuals who last trained under that company or have that name. You can find the individual you are looking for by clicking on the “Details” link to see the training they have taken by course and date. This database will be updated regularly.

If you use this database and find mistakes or have questions concerning the search engine or database, please call Duane McCoy, logger training coordinator and administrator of the database at 317-232-4112 or dmccoy@dnr.in.gov.
