Graduates of these courses can find employment as skilled forestry workers capable of carrying out all forestry assignments, in forestry operations of any size. As a Master of Forestry there are also numerous employment opportunities in forestry companies, the agricultural community, the forest management community and agricultural companies with large forest areas.
Both training centres in Traunkirchen and Ossiach prepare the knowledge acquired by the BFW and transmit it in the form of broad further education courses. These are available to both people who are active in the forestry industry and those who are interested in forests. Every year over 15,000 people take part in our courses and seminars, which range from the correct working techniques to strategic questions about forest ecosystem management.
