Forestry Webinar Portal

On an ongoing basis we do approve CLE credits provided by the Southern Regional Extension Forestry's Forestry Webinar Portal. This learning system includes many types of education credits so please double check the individual modules you select to see if they have been approved specifically for Georgia Master Timber Harvester CLEs before you take a course and REMEMBER to attach your Certificates to your GA-MTH Renewal Application. We do not administer this online CLE system so please contact Southern Regional Extension Forestry for technical assistance.
