The training takes place in Sofia, Bulgaria from 27-28 November 2018, and is specifically suited for both existing and future auditors wanting to know all details of the PEFC Chain of Custody standard, but interested consultants and companies are welcomed too. The training will take place at the Forest Institute at the BAS, Sofia, 132 "Kl.Ohridski" Blvd.

The cost for the two-day training is CHF 500 per person. The training will be in English, with simultaneous interpretation in Bulgarian language provided.

What to expect

Organized by PEFC International and PEFC Bulgaria, the two-day initial training will first introduce the PEFC system and our organization. The technical part is a detailed walkthrough of the PEFC Chain of Custody standard, introducing all key requirements, combined with group exercises.

The online training is a form of blended learning. You will do an online case study exercise in preparation of the online classroom training. The training will update you on PEFC activities, key elements of the PEFC Chain of Custody Standard and discussion of the case study exercise.

You will receive a certificate of attendance after successful completion of the course. With this certificate you can demonstrate compliance with the PEFC training requirements.

Why you should get training

With over 20,000 companies covered by PEFC Chain of Custody certification worldwide, the PEFC Chain of Custody standard is widely applied by certified companies, certification bodies and auditors on a daily basis.

Our auditor training ensures that everyone involved in the process is fully up-to-date on changes to the standard and on interpretation and explanation of specific requirements.

This enables the consistent application of the Chain of Custody requirements in daily practice, and allows us to exchange experiences with, and receive valuable feedback from auditors on the implementation of the standard.

Attending a PEFC-recognized training is also a precondition to become a qualified auditor.

Need to train several auditors?

If you work for a certification body with a high number of auditors, the PEFC Training Recognition Program might be a more efficient way to receive the PEFC training. See how you can take part in the program.
