Membership Benefits


FITPA provides members with a professional platform for engagement on matters common to the forestry training fraternity, as well as a unified and collective voice in lobbying government and industry.

This is seen in the formation of the FICPF as well as FSA recognition of FITPA as the only professional association for training providers within the forest industry.

Other recognition includes FP&M Seta which is itself a member of the association, as is the majority of large grower companies. With the recognition of these industry giants comes increased access to business opportunities in terms of skills development.
