The Timber Building Solutions IRC is responsible for national training package qualifications relevant to the Australian forest and wood products industry which covers a diverse array of sectors from forest growing and management, harvesting and haulage, sawmilling and processing, timber manufactured products, wood panel and board production, through to timber building solutions and merchandising.
