Welcome to the official online Minnesota eFMG - Forest Management Guidelines training course!

Important: You will need to refer to a copy of Minnesota’s Forest Management Guidelines ("gold book"), the Biomass Harvesting Guidelines insert, and the new Pocket Guide introduced in 2014. PDF versions are located to the left in the "Resource Links".

If you prefer a hard copy of the publications and cannot print them, you can request them from the Minnesota Logger Education Program (MLEP) at (218) 879-5633.

This training requires computer speakers or headphones. High speed internet is highly suggested for this training.

After you have registered, you can access the online course at anytime.  Remember, it is suggested to use Mozilla Firefox with your Moodle course for it to function properly.  You need to have installed Adobe Flash Player 8.0 or newer for the course presentations to work properly. Because Flash is required, this training will not work on an iPad. Also, Moodle (the courseware used for this course) utilizes pop-ups. Disable your browser pop-up blocker to ensure you can access all the course content.
