The TOP Initial Training class serves as an entry-point to being TOP Trained.
The TOP Update is the annual continuing education requirement for TOP trained individuals. Beginning in the training cycle (July 1- June 30 each year) after completing the TOP Initial training, participants must take the TOP Update and pay an $80 annual fee by June 30 each year to maintain their TOP trained status.
The TOP Update is a facilitated video-based class that will normally take about 2 hours. The Update can be facilitated by any SC Registered Forester and is often offered by mills and wood dealers for their wood suppliers and contractors.
You can take the on-demand training through the Team Safe Trucking online learning portal at https://teamsafe.talentlms.com/.
You will need to set up a free account to log in, then search the course catalog for “TOP Update 2022” to take the class on your own at any time.
