 About - ProLogger

The North Carolina Forestry Association’s ProLogger Program was officially started in 1994 in response to a record 13 timber harvesting fatalities in North Carolina in 1993.

In a cooperative effort directed by the NCFA, Forestry Mutual Insurance Company, the North Carolina Department of Labor, North Carolina State Highway Patrol, and the North Carolina Forest Service share teaching responsibilities during the ProLogger Base Class. The base course promotes safety, business, and environmental awareness. All loggers who want to become a ProLogger must take the Base Class, which includes one day of classroom discussion and one field day.

In 2005, the ProLogger Program added a continuing education element in the form of an annual Module Class; all ProLoggers must take an annual Module Class to remain a ProLogger in good standing. The annual Module Classes are offered at various locations throughout the state. The ProLogger year runs from July 1st to June 30th.

Currently, over 1,500 ProLoggers have taken the Base Class and have met their continuing education requirement.

Training for the 2020-21 year will begin in January of 2021. The required course is Module 21, which is available for purchase at the NCFA office.

All ProLoggers must take Module 21 and pay their ProLogger dues ($110) by August 31, 2021 to remain in good standing.
