Wood Technology Society courses - specific subject modules
IOM3 Training Academy has recognised that individuals may wish to gain information about a specific aspect of timber and has accordingly made available the optional modules from the certificate course as stand along educational resources.
For candidates who successfully complete one or more of these specific subject modules, IOM3 Training Academy will issue a certificate naming the individual and the subject studied. This is especially relevant as evidence of CPD material having been studied by those working in the timber and allied industries or for other professionals working in the construction industry.
